The Grande Hotel in Beira, Mozambique was once a luxurious hotel but now it is a shadow of its former incarnation. Having closed in 1963, its ensuing decline mirrored the historical trajectory of the country. Here, we trace the history of the hotel, from its opening in 1954 with 110 sumptuous guest rooms up to today when the crumbling hotel serves as a home without water or electricity to more than 2,500 people.
