Majestic Mansions, near Cape Town

Majestic Mansions, near Cape TownDuring the Cape Town World Congress on Art Deco in 2003 we were taken all over the city and nearby suburbs without any real idea (as visitors) exactly where we were. Sometimes we are a bit like sheep and, perhaps not blindly, but certainly hurriedly, we snap pics of some great buildings as we glide past.

Majestic Mansions falls into this category because I don't know exactly where it is and frankly the pictures are not that good. But the building is a little ripper.

I especially lke the concrete balconies with the small shade eyebrows above them.

The building also has some nice decoration in the raised section at the centre of the roofline.
