OLLEY, Christopher Joseph

Born: 1849 02 10
Died: 1902 07 28

Architect


In 1882 Olley appears to have been working in Cape Town since it was from an address in Cape Town that he submitted a design for the competition for Durban's first town hall in 1882 under the nom de plume 'Experienced', according to Martin (1980:137). He was working in Johannesburg around 1892 where he was still listed in 1899.
