Description
It was the home of the first radio broadcasting service in South Africa, and with local artist and sculptor Rene Shapshak's panels, friezes, and vertical lines, it makes a handsome Art Deco building in the city centre.
Reaching out from its centre were three office towers of 11, 14 and 18 storeys, with its height reinforcing the long, vertical lines of Art Deco.
His Majesty's was a replacement of the 1903 His Majesty's Theatre, and took up a whole block.
