Nelly Edwards – Joburg’s First Female Architect

Sat Aug 20, 14:30 - Sat Aug 20, 16:00
176 Galteemore Street, Malvern


In honour of Woman’s Month, join us to celebrate Nelly Edwards – Johannesburg’s first practising female architect.

The beautiful residence at 176 Galteemore Street in Malvern was designed in 1933 by Nelly Edwards for Mrs Anna Fogal. It’s a tour de force of art deco style, grandly occupying three stands. Brightly coloured tiles in geometric patterns adorn the fireplaces and bathroom, boldly patterned stained glass windows are to be found in almost every room, and the house even contains the very modern convenience of a telephone cupboard. This is a must-see for all art deco fans.


Due to the size of the house, this exclusive tour is only open to JHF members and is limited to just 16 places. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
