Chancellor House
save place
The First Black Law Office in South Africa
A few weekends ago I went on a guided inner city tour offered by Tour Operator, Past Experiences. My guide Jo, was very friendly and had loads of information to share about this specific area (Ferreirasdorp), including multi-cultural and historical significance. This particular photo is of Chancellor House, the first Black law firm in South Africa, opened by Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo. The Green Sign in the top right hand corner actually shows their signage "Mandela and Tambo Attorneys" The building was previously in a very bad state and has since been restored to it's former glory and now houses and museum like timeline of events in the lives of Mandela and Tambo during the Apartheid era. If you're interested in more inner city walking tours, please follow the link to the Past Experiences website where you'll be able to see what's on offer.
