Thank you to the Heritage Association of South Africa (HASA) and the University of Pretoria for allowing us to publish this powerful piece on the restoration of Dunluce in 1976. The article was first published in the 1978 edition of Restorica, the old journal of the Simon van der Stel Foundation.
A Draft Heritage Impact Assessment Report was compiled for the areas Orange Grove, Fellside and Maryvale and sections of Sydenham, Mountainview and Orchards where the City of Johannesburg wishes to implement the Corridors of Freedom Strategic Area Framework which will involve the upgrade of social facilities, amendments to height zones, transport related upgrades & mixed-use zoning amendments.
These days overseas travel broadens the mind and empties the pocket. Sometimes on a journey abroad an encounter with a work of art, recalls a remembered and much loved treasure at home and in a flash a whole new understanding drops into the brain. I had just such an experience in San Francisco recently when I discovered the fabulous European art collection of the Legion of Honour Art museum.
