Help celebrate SA's rich heritage

Sep 04 2012 10:05


Cape Town - Do you remember the old Boland Bank, Volkskas, Groovy cooldrink... when we still had paper R1, R2 and R5 notes... when all banks were building societies... when South Africa was Lion country?

Did you know that Standard Bank is celebrating 150 years this year; that Golden Arrow Bus Services did so last year; and that South Africa's two top financial services companies, Old Mutual and Sanlam, have so far offered a collective 261 years of service in especially insurance?
 
South Africa has a rich business heritage, so much so that the oldest South African family-owned business, Boplaas in the Koue Bokkeveld, is ranked in the top 100 list of oldest family businesses in the world.

Can you imagine life without a cellphone or Google? What was your first car and how have you changed models over the years?
