Thanks Hugh. Was that a local Company? (National Mutual Insurance). I can't find anything about it online. The building is still there as those pics I have posted were taken last year, and I saw the building just yesterday, but couldn't get close to it as there is some construction work and barricades near by. It is probably occupied by the security forces as that section of the road is still closed to traffic.
A lot of old buildings on Chatham street have been knocked down and new buildings are coming up. While a few older buildings are being renovated maintaining their original look.
Can you tell me anything more about the buildings on that road? Have heard of some old popular locations like Dominion, Lord Nelson, White Horse etc. but except for the latter which is now in another location, I don't know much about that hub of Colombo from yesteryear.
