Port Elizabeth Tramways Building

A blue heron lurking in the Baakens River under the M4 freeway. The reflection in the water is from the Port Elizabeth Tramways Building which is being restored after many years of neglect.


Restoration of the Tramways Building is well under way. When this project is complete this it is going to become one of the city's iconic landmarks. Credit must be given  to the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) for having the vision to turn this once derelict building into their head office.

I love that first image, with the reflection of the building!! You don't notice the heron at first...

The Tramways Building is going to be a huge asset in downtown PE when its completed. Love that first photo. I need to go walk about there as well.

That first image is so painterly and delicate, but I love the one with the building, too. How good to hear it is being restored. The red is memorable.
