From a copy of a drawing titled:

Addition to Flats for Mrs L. F Wolff cor Buffalo & Hill Streets, Lot 7, Block M, Ward 2, East London.

Drawing was prepared by:

The drawing describes a 1950's style three storey addition to an existing Deco-Moderne double storey block of flats on the same property. Each of the three floors was provided with two one-bedroom flats, the whole structure under a low pitched hipped roof. The street elevation was largely of blue face-brick used to 'frame' the windows to first and second floors - these two windows were separated vertically by a rectangular plaster panel.
