Splendid Georgian warehouse.
Stairs to the African Arts Institute office. The spare part for the antique lift, R50? thousand! Keeps everyone fit!

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.
