Comment

My Great Grandfather & Grandmother shifted into this house when it was first built. (Early 1920's? until about 1950) WH (Dad) Brewer who managed the brickworks and later leased it from the SEC and ran it as a private business died in 1948 and his wife shifted to Murrumbeena to live with her daughter Rose Withers soon after. I have a partial photo of the house taken in 1924 that shows part of the arch on the front porch. The photo also shows a brick house to the left of # 30. I have to say that the plan shown does not appear to be 30 Southway but rather the house to its left in my photo. The plan does not show the archway that appears in the photo.
