39 JAN SMUTS AVENUE

This house was designed in 1905 by Percival Hill Mitchelson for American Mining Engineer, Charles James Price, manager of Geldenhuis Deep Gold Mine. When war broke out the technical staff of the mines formed the Railway Pioneer Regiment to repair war damage done to the railways. Railways were essential to the British army for moving troops and supplies. Price served as captain in the first battalion.
