De toren op de achtergrond is The Cartwright Corner House, corner Adderley en Darling Street van architect Hannes van der Merwe. Het witte gebouw ervoor is The Eleven Adderley Building/het voormalige OK Bazaars. De recente reconstructie en modernisering van The Eleven Adderley Building is van Stauch Vorster Architects. Op de locatie 11 Adderley Street stond eerst de Commercial Exchange (1819-1893) van Edward Durham & William Warren, en daarna de General Post Office (1897-1950) van architect Henry Sidon Greaves 1840-1901.

The architects of OK Bazaars Building, 11 Adderley Street, are very probably Frederick McIntosh Glennie (1889-1954) & Jan Zeger Schuurmans Stekhoven (1895-1956). They designed probably also the building in front of the ABSA tower.
