I am so pleased to see Berea Court in Glenwood has been given a lick of paint which enhances her magnificent Art Deco design. Doesn’t she look as proud as the recipient of of a great make-over? Warms my heart, it does.
If you are interested in Durban’s Art Deco heritage, have a look at the brilliant website of the Durban Art Deco Society which allows you take take a virtual tour of Durban’s Art Deco buildings. There are pictures of the building and text which tells you the history of each spot. A really fascinating insight into a type of architectural style that Durban is renowned for. These screen shots will give you an idea of what the website is like. Do go and have a look.
This pic was taken at the end of a fabulous day touring Durban’s townships with Street Scene Tours. More about it later in the week when I have time to write about it at length.
