SAED:SOCIAL:DRUM JULY 1952 TRANSPORT CRISIS – 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. Already many workers spend up to four hours queuing and traveling every day: They are crushed into trains, hang out of the windows, and perch on couplings between carriages. Late trains, breakdowns and missed connections periodically make workers hours late for work: sometimes they lose their jobs as a result. Workers live so far out of town that they are dependent on buses and trains every day of their lives. (Photograph by Drum Photographer Baileys Archives) Neg 138 Frame 7
