Physical Description

House, 82 Holland Street is a single storey masonry and corrugated iron house constructed in the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are red face brick (stretcher bond). The roof is hipped and gabled and corrugated iron clad. The front verandah sits under a separate corrugated iron roof. The verandah is supported by chamfered timber posts over the brick floor. The asymmetrical façade has a timber battened gable and timber double hung windows. The place has a painted timber picket front boundary fence.


This section of Holland Street was developed by the Workers’ Home Board in the 1930s. Subdivision 1553 of Lot 1350 comprises a Workers Homes Board house built in the rate period 1913/14. John Ambrose Hunt was the first occupant and lived in the house until the early 1920s. The next occupant of the house was Frederick Henry Mordecai followed by Joseph E. Hodgson. In the early 1940s the occupant was John Robert Earnshaw and the house was still owned by the Workers Homes Board. In 1949 the house was occupied by Norm Earnshaw. The house was originally number 153, and became number 82 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937. The 1915 Sewerage Plan (No 2068) (damaged and a partial view) only shows a weatherboard wash house on the west side of the lot. Aerial photos show that between 1985 and 1995 the house was reroofed and extended to the rear.
