The Emerald Tea Lounge

Concord House (“the Pam Golding building”) on the corner of Summerly and Main Road in Kenilworth is being – actually, probably has been by now – demolished and will be redeveloped into offices and shops over the next 18 months.

The partial demolition revealed a previous incarnation of the building – The Emerald Tea Lounge – of which I can find absolutely no record on Google. Presumably, this means that it never actually existed, so why the sign, I wonder?

A bigger view here.

UPDATE: According to the Cape Telephone Directories, The Emerald Tea Lounge was open between 1953-56.
