Dawson's Hotel Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2012

Designed in about 1935 by W. von Berg for the Dawson family, this seven-storey building has been a hotel ever since. Bordering on what was then the theatre district and smartest shopping street in Africa, the dining room and cocktail bar were popular venues for visitors to the City. The fluted plaster mouldings on the balconies create horizontal bands which run around the corner creating the sense of movement which is typical of the Art Deco style.
