"Our Building Heritage traces the history of building - both architecturally and functionally from the landing of Jan van Riebeeck in 1652 to the vast cities that are dotted around the country today. It is broken down in logical order to time-linked chapters covering the most important period of development in the history of building in South Africa. Furthermore, it is not limited to to building techniques, but outlines changes and developments in the crafts and skills of the many thousands of people who have contributed to creating the cities we have around us today."
