According to the City of Cape Town's Heritage Building Plans Register (2013), the building was on the north-east side of Strand Street, 63 feet [19.38m] from the NW corner of St George's Street. That makes it one of the buildings that was demolished the early 1960s to make way for the Prudential Insurance building. (Arthur Radburn, April 2023)
