The History
Built in 1904 as the head office of the then United Building Society, Somerset House took pride of place in Fox Street among other financial and law offices in Marshalltown. On the southern side, the building overlooked Government Square where the actual court building was situated and where Mahatma Gandhi practised law among others. Somerset House was built as a typical Edwardian building with some Victorian and Art Nouveau influences. It was one of the smaller arcade buildings in the city (but the only remaining one from that time). Visitors could walk through the glass-roofed arcade from the square to Fox Street. The banking hall was on the western side of the arcade with the bank offices upstairs and the vault downstairs. The United Building Society occupied the building until 1930 and then moved to a bigger building further along Fox Street. It later became United Bank and much later amalgamated with Volkskas,Trust Bank and Allied Bank to become Absa (Amalgamated Banks of South Africa).

After United left Somerset House, the building became the home of Bowman’s – the law firm that was founded here. At the same time the vault was sold off into private ownership and became a private vault that still operated until 1978. The vault apparently closed down after the great bank robbery’ which caused the businesses’ bankruptcy. In later years the building became the home of a family-owned property empire and the caretakes of other buildings in this property stable lived in Somerset House while a few cafes, take-away shops
and a greengrocer occupied the retail spaces, opening to Fox Street and the then Van der Bijl Square.
