Can anyone tell me about this company and it's operations in SL? I believe it was some kind of a shop? The building is still there in Colombo Fort, although badly dilapidated and the police are occupying it. Wasn't the Sathosa located here at one time? Hopefully, it will be renovated under the new Fort Plan as many other buildings in the area are being, including the Lloyds building next door to it:
