Photographer's Note

The Woermannhaus in the Bismarck Street of Swakopmund is one of the oldest buildings in the city and one of its most popular landmarks. The complex was founded in 1894 by the architect Frederick Holt in the historicizing style timber-frame for the Hamburg agent Adolph Woermann and the German-South West African Trading Damara and Namaqua Company. The complex consists of the main house, a courtyard and the so-called Damara tower. Today the Woermannhaus is the Swakopmund town library, an art gallery and a military museum.
