Patrick Coyne would like to know if anyone has a picture of the plaque adjacent to the main Post Office steps commemorating the fact that Winston Churchill gave a speech from there.
Added February 6, 2017: See this post for a picture of the plaque.
Does anybody remember and perhaps have photographs of the MENTONE MANSIONS? I think i recall this place correctly. IF memmory serves me correctly it was a self catering place of about 8 storeys high, and it was situation on the marine parade between the Elangeni and the Maharani Hotel.
This was in the late 1965/66? I remember I was a little girl visiting with my grandparents from Pretoria and I used to take their little dog for a piddle early in the morning still dressed in my pyjmas, while they would keep an eye over me from their little flat. it was lovely times and great memories of simpler and safer times.
I have searched everywhere but seems not to find anything about this place. Mentone mansions it was pinkish in color.
I had a look in the FAD files and Google Street view and can’t find anything on Mentone Mansions, only Mentone Road. Can anyone help?
