Surtee's / Kay's Fashion Building Blue Plaque and Entrance via New Braamfontein Lofts

Lined with shops on both sides, with goods spilling out onto the colonnaded pavements, the 14th Street bazaar was a bustling centre of trade. Families lived above their businesses, taking turns to help out behind the counter. By 1977, the traders were evicted by the apartheid government, and moved to the Oriental Plaza. Sixty-seven households formed to Save Pageview Association which fought for their homes through the courts, defying the bulldozers.
