I liked the views.











I didn't like WBHO's name being cheaply slapped on the bridge.

Remembering Sandton's Famous Stallion



In the late 1980s a magnificent statue of a rearing stallion was erected outside the Sandton Civic Centre near the corner of Rivonia and West (just up from where the Gautrain Station is today). It was surrounded by a fountain and became an instant landmark in the rapidly expanding Sandton CBD.

The statue was donated to the Sandton City Council by Toyota South Africa. It appears as though the choice of a stallion was the perfect fit for the company and the Council. Toyota South Africa had used a stallion as its symbol for many years and Sandton was famous for its horse clubs and riding schools (two horses even appeared on the Sandton Crest).

After some solid detective work, Henry received a statement from Toyota South Africa recounting how they had taken back ownership of the statue and moved it to their plant in Durban. Toyota representatives were concerned as the stallion had suffered severe vandalism. Its tail had been hacked off and vandals were starting on the legs. Further research is required to explain why one of Sandtonís icons was allowed to deteriorate so dramatically.

Assuming it is the original statue, perhaps it is time for a campaign to bring the historic stallion back to Sandton?

I never even knew Toyota used a stallion as a symbol.. it would definitely be cool to move it back away from the factory.

They should put it in front of the Sandton Gautrain Station.

There was a large group of photographers last night around the new Discovery office.
Were any of you there?
