A bit of Melville History

Melville is a bohemian suburb of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. It’s restaurants and bars are a popular hang-out for the cosmopolitan crowd, and is also one of Johannesburg’s most popular tourist destinations. The suburb was proclaimed on 5 October 1896, and is named after the land surveyor, Edward Harker Vincent Melvill. In the public sale notice, the suburb was described as a “picturesque and healthy spot in the vicinity of Johannesburg with a magnificent view of the wooded country to the north with the blue Pretoria ranges stretching like lines of steel against the horizon”.
