Eloff Street and Others

Sunday, July 30, 2006

When the South African version of Monopoly came out, Eloff Street was the most expensive street in the board game, because it was the greatest shopping street in the city, like London's Oxford or Regent Streets. Today...... well, let's just say that it won't make the monopoly board.
