Colonial Houses of South Africa
Struik, Jan 1, 1987 - Architecture, Colonial - 288 pages
This work explores 23 houses in South Africa, varying in character from the simple dignity of Barville Park in the Eastern Cape to the grand-scale opulence of the Tuynhuis in Cape Town. Their histories, both architectural and domestic, are presented, including information on the circumstances of the buildings, the families who occupied them, and their fate at the hands of subsequent generations.

Unless I have missed something, I cannot find anything on the late MJ Solomon 1914 with Lady Phillips era where he was architect to the YMCA and was a part of the art school in Johannesburg.
