Johannesburg City Hall and Art Gallery completed

Johannesburg gains two important buildings. The City Hall is completed in 1914, in a style described as Edwardian Baroque, with a neo-Renaissance entrance. The next year the Johannesburg Art Gallery is built in a Beaux Arts style; it is the brainchild of Lady Florence Phillips, art lover and wife of Randlord (and Jameson Raid plotter) Sir Lionel Phillips, who donates the gallery’s first collection.
