Brisbane's history in photographs.
There were worker's cottages that were far smaller and less impressive than this one (looks). Do we know how many rooms Fell's Cottage had?
Although I have been to the site I was unable to even see inside.There was certainly a kitchen and a living room, a bathroom and at least two bedrooms.
Two gay friends of mine who have now passed away - Rolf and Lyle Freeman lived in Moray Street New Farm. Lyle was a friend of the lady who lived in this house early 1970s. I lived at "Spathis Court", 263 Gregory Terrace then and walked up many times to have tea in the garden under the trees in the front yard . . . we were never let in and even then I doubt if the electricity was connected. I can't remember her name but the lady was an avid reader and a poet and a very beatnik person.
I saw this place on realestate.com.au recently. Knew you'd be all over it :-)
Will be watching this one with interest, I wonder if anyone will take it on :-)
