HOGG, James

Born: fl. 1860
Died: 1863


According to Radford (1979:119), Hogg arrived in Cape Town about 1860; he had worked on the railways in England, Ireland, Portugal and Brazil until about this date. He was active in Cape Town between 1861 and 1863, possibly acting as supervising architect for W WHITE since he adapted White's designs for 'the second stage of building at the Diocesan College, Rondebosch in 1862' (Radford 1979:119). He also designed the first synagogue in Cape Town which is in the Government Gardens 'a very novel building, to say the least' comments Radford, it being part classical, part Egyptian and decorated with the Star of David. Hogg was also supervising architect of St James Church, Sea Point in 1863 although not completed to his design.
