This is a very well preserved colonial structure, a landmark building in Colombo. The exterior colour scheme has not been changed at least for the last 50 years, that is a far as I can remember. There are some very old lifts still working & if you can visit the office of Cargills Ceylon Ltd on the first floor you should be able to see some antique devices on display. Presently a modern Super Market & a digital colour lab is functioning in the ground floor. If you carefully look along the pavement you can see how goods were unloaded on to the basement of the departmental store. It's an architectural beauty.
