Notes on the Geography of South Africa: Port Elizabeth: Photo 25

world pictures South Africa: Port Elizabeth

Kitty-corner to the town hall is the public library, completed in 1902 on the site of an old court house. The architect was one Henry Cheers from Twickenham, a London suburb. The terra-cotta panels were made in England and shipped here in numbered pieces for assembly under the direction of the town engineer, Orlando Middleton, who had completed his RIBA exam. All of which raises the question of how cultures project themselves into new lands and under what conditions they evolve into something else. Which they surely didn't in this case, and don't in most others. There you go, another theory with a money-back guarantee.
