Source, Ilustrations and Features

Murray, Sand, Swamp, p126 - 1871 JH built a new house on the family land in Bambra Rd, but left for Brighton 8 yrs later; the later owner JMcD called the house Glenholme; p 42 - JMcD was a partner in Sands & McDougall, and the house later became a lunatic asylum. SLV Vale map collection, book 8a, p 109. Handwritten notes & sketch plan, '..Harts House, Bambra Rd, Caulfield..' House in two blocks of similar size with link between, one brick of 2 stories, the other single storey wood. Rough dimensions & short description given. TS Note: The brick section of the house generally matches part of the building depicted in Murray, Sand, Swamp, p 42, but the timber building has been replaced by a dominant larger scale wing at the rear. The scale of the original timber building suggests that it may have predated the brick building.
