Physical Description

88 Holland Street is a single storey masonry and iron house. The walls are rendered brick and tuck pointed red face brick (stretcher bond). The roof is hipped with ridge ventilators and corrugated iron clad. The verandah sits under the main roof and is supported by rendered masonry piers. The front façade has timber double hung windows. Two face brick chimneys are evident. The place has a painted rendered brick and painted picket front boundary fence.


This section of Holland Street was developed by the Workers’ Home Board in the 1930s.
This Workers Homes Board house on Lot 1550 was built in 1913/14 and was first occupied by John R Donnelly.
The next occupant from 1915/16 to 1930 was John Hyde. Hyde was born at Aldinga, South Australia and came to Western Australia in the 1890s, He was connected with the first brewing plant established in Coolgardie. He moved to Fremantle due to ill health and died in September 1930. In the same year the ownership of the house passed from the Workers Home Board to his wife Sarah Selina Hyde. She lived in it for a time in the early 1940s, but names of various occupants listed in post office directories (Bennett, Howard, Fimmel) suggests she rented the property out to tenants.

The house was originally number 159, and became number 88 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937.
The 1915 Sewerage Plan (No 2068) (damaged and a partial view) shows a brick house with a half-length front verandah on the west side, and an attached wash house at the rear (west end) of another verandah.
Horace Edward Long, a Fremantle Councillor, occupied the house from c1950 up until his death in 1989.
Aerial photos show that between 1985 and 1995 the lot was subdivided and another house was built at the rear (7A Montreal Street). The west side of the house was also extended.


Condition assessed as good (assessed from streetscape survey only).
