The sign on the building's balcony reads 'Redaccao do Guardian / Guardian Office (Editorial) / Entrada/Entrance Rua Tenente Valadim'.

The building appears to be at the junction of Rua Nova da Alfândega and Rua Major Araújo. Many thanks to the Houses of Maputo blog for help with identifying this location.
