The Rand Club

The Rand Club, Cecil John Rhodes’ club, originated at the centre of what became the greatest gold field the world has ever seen, filled with a cosmopolitan and colourful population, people of all nationalities, all drawn to the Transvaal by the glamour of gold and the dreams of fortune. It has stood the test of time, and is still an upmarket club in downtown Johannesburg today. Some of the rooms in the Rand Club are visited and the significance of the club is discussed.
