1907 to 1912 Horne, Thomas
1911 Burmester, Charles Mansel

(Since the directories include listings before 1909 and the building permit is from 1909, it is possible that there was another building on this site before then. Alternatively, the addresses on this block may have changed.)

 

For many years, the house offered rental accommodation. As tenants moved out, they sometimes held auctions to sell their furniture, especially if they were leaving for another city or another country.
