Pretoria Club, also called Second (2nd) Pretoria Club

(FRIBA nom papers 1904)
THE PRETORIA CLUB. Pretoria, the Metropolis of the South African Republic, has been characterised as an exceedingly dull town, there being a notable absence of that life and bustle observable in Johannesburg. The Boer Government having in its employment a large number of Europeans, and a High Court being held in the city, rendered the erection of a club for the use of its citizens imperative; the above picture represents the building, which is one of the best in South Africa.

Also called the 2nd Pretoria Club (Allen 1971:120; Dunston 1975:44)
