From the guest editor
My father’s (1902-1978) first vehicle was an ox waggon. He passed away nearly a decade after the first man landed on the moon in 1969. In his life, considerable changes occurred in the field of technology and in social conditions. The rise in the Free State from poverty after the ravage of the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), the First World War (1914-1919), the Great Influenza (1918), the Great Depression (1929-1933) and the Second World War (1939-1945) divided the periods prior to or after this chain of events. In fact, each of these events also influenced the world of planning.
