"In 1913, Bashew Bros, put up their own factory, a landmark in the Cape Town of its day, in Searle Street. Extended and altered from time to time, it served the firm for the next thirty-eight years. The time had come for another major move by 1951 and in that year the company took occupation of its new R200,000 factory that had been erected on a three-acre site in the industrial area off Gunners' Circle." (Shorten, 1963)
