The “Sir Abe Bailey” room focuses on the era of the great “Randlords” in Johannesburg. Designed by the grandson of Sir Abe Bailey, one of the wealthiest Randlords, the room and its comforts are in line with the sort of furnishings that an early Rand Club would have offered a successful young bachelor on his way up in the finance world. The design elements pay tribute to the Chinese indentured labourers who were among the first to work on the mines.
