This building is grand in an uncompromising manner, as with most of the ZAR PWD buildings it is constructed of the usual red brick and ochre, with corrugated-iron roof. The elongated double-storied building is divided into the usual five sections: an ornate central section is flanked by two recessed, simple blocks containing the main portions of the building; and at either end, pavilion-like end-pieces; these, together with the central section, have square turreted roofs terminated by finials and a clock tower forming a slender centre-piece.
(Picton-Seymour, 1977: 279-280)
