CAPE TOWN – District Six Home Coming Centre
Splendid Georgian warehouse.
Stairs to the African Arts Institute office. The spare part for the antique lift, R50? thousand! Keeps everyone fit!
Photography by Odette Herbert
Big long spaces with exhibition lighting. And unfamiliar holes in the ceiling
Heavy duty metal fire? doors & barred tiny windows, run along the adjacent building, that long ago was the woman’s jail.
Metal beams exposed, like much of the clay, sundried bricks are.
A splendid building.
