EGOLI HERITAGE FOUNDATION
MENTONE COURT
American born I W Schlesinger came to South
Africa in 1894. He bought Cook's Farm and named
it Killarney in c. 1913. In 1890 Michele Angelo
Zoccola established the Grand National Hotel in
Rissik Street and in c. 1935 his son Mario built
Mentone Court in the Art Deco style. The
architects were Cook and Cowen. Zoccola's
heirs owned Mentone Court until 1982
when it was sectionalised.
