Description . JULY 1952 - TRANSPORT CRISIS Ð NEG 138. SAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITY:DRUM JULY 1952Ð TRANSPORT CRISIS Ð Africans spend years of their lives waiting for Buses, Trains: Queues get longer and longer. The State of Road and Rail Transport for Africans is critical. Mr W. Peshe of Newclare: ÒI have to wake up about five OÕclock if I mean to eat anything before I leave for work. In winter , it is still dark and cold when I leave home at six. We have to fight our way onto the trains. But it is worse in the evenings. I reach the station after five, but only manage to catch a train at six. It is after 6.30 when I get home.Ó (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©Baileys Archives) Neg 138 Frame 2
