Murray, Sand, Swamp, p 155 - Glenmore [sic] home of Hugh More [sic]. Argus, 23 July 1869, p 3. Crouch & Wilson. Tenders wanted for villa residence at Elsternwick for H Moore. Catherine Tate, Austr Arch B, MUAS 1996, says it is Glenmoore, built by Hugh Moore. It was built c 1869-72 to the design of Thomas Watts, according to the family, and extended backwards in 1883 as indicated by ratebooks. Later shops were built in front and a new entrance created at the side. Watts also did the shops and Felicitie Campbell has his drawings for them. H&SM moved in 1889 to Corinella in Caulfield, and according to tradition she said she'd never return because of the ten shops built on her front garden. It was leased out from 1890. From 1893 to 1902 Annie Cowie ran it as a school called Glenmoore. After HM's death in 1903 his daughter Harriet and her husband St John Hall lived there.
