Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 15
The ABC up top stands for Atwell's Bakery Company, a chain owned by South Africa Milling. The building had earlier been a boarding house, then a club for the navy. The bakery moved in in 1897 and began baking largely for the navy. The building was remodelled, and the Standard Bank rented part of the street frontage; upstairs remained residential. The bakery operated until 1929, but South Africa Milling didn't sell the building until 1942.
