Facts

  • His Majesty's was a replacement of the 1903 His Majesty's Theatre, and took up a whole block.
  • 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.
  • 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.
