National Monument.

A number of years ago an old delapidated building underwent a facelift, but it was only recently I discovered the reason - it had been declared a National Monument.

It's so good to see a building such as this, not only being preserved, but also in full use. It is now business premises with people going in and out all day. I wonder how many of them stop to read the plaque at the front door or even give a thought to the fact that their building is part of Durban's history.
