Jooste & Bryant Building
Click to view map
There was a difference between the shops built prior to 1900 and those built after the turn of the century. The scale of the building components, such as panels with mouldings, parapets and pilasters, was bigger and the ornamentation more classicist in character in the case of the latter. The colouring of the buildings was adapted accordingly and the most common colour used was white. A typical example of such a shop is the Jooste & Bryant Building. While the façade does have verandahs, the overall design is more severe and more formal than that of buildings put up before 1900.
