Architect


WG MOFFAT and W HIRST entered into partnership in about 1934 and practised in Durban until 1944. They won the competition for the Government Offices and Magistrate's Court in Pietermaritzburg in 1934 and were responsible for the Reserve Bank Buildings in both Durban and Pietermaritzburg. 'In Durban at this time there is almost nothing to note. A few adventurous industrial buildings, with interesting structures, Moffat & Hurst's [sic] paint factory' (Herbert 1975:153).
