You are correct---you have control.

Sorry for the delay, currently away from home in Scotland. An old photo this time of a building that was very famous in the late 1960's for something that occurred there.

Exactly right! It is indeed Groote Schuur Hospital. The world's first heart transplant was carried out there in 1967 by a certain Christiaan Barnard. I was referred there in about 1976 and passed Dr Barnard in the entrance.
All yours Karearea.
