Sartorial Building

Cape Town, Simon's Town, Western Cape 7995, South Africa

Created By: Simon's Town Historical Society


The Erf on which this property stands was once part of the estate Constantia. The existing building was erected in 1845 after a store on the site was demolished. It was the original premises of butchers Hablutzel and Hugo. It later became Amlay's Butcher shop and in 1936 it was used to accommodate the "Simon's Town Social and Billiard Club". This did not last long and in 1943 the naval tailor and outfitters A.T.Manuel and son opened their business there. They traded there for 54 years; they named the building Sartorial House.
