Number one! The Barbican.

It is clear to see from this pic that only 1 of the 6 doors are still left






Refurbishment: Old Mutual Style. At least they are bricking up the hole in the wall. I want to see more in November OM!

The Library Hotel - Work is moving along swiftly. And I am glad this one was not imploded.






I love this pic, and took it by accident. Just popped my camera above the fence.

My first computer was a commodore 64. I used to have over 1000 games. But it would take an eternity to load a game, and sometimes I had to try more than once to load the game, for I had to get the treble right with a screwdriver. My favourite game used to be Giana Sisters.

New Mcafe opened in Rissik street... Other buildings under repair?

BIG NEWS! The IBM building on the corner of main and kruis sold, and yes, there is construction going on inside. The previous owners don't know much about the building now, but it is definately going to get a new lease on life! HOORAH! Well, we have to see what happens first of course.

Library Hotel well underway.

Customs House and Rand Water also being restored.

The Library is getting a make-over.

The Elizabeth Hotel in Sauer street (an eyesore for many years) is all scaffolded up and undergoing renovations. Right across from this you have the huge new FNB building.
