Mount Lawley locals - anyone up for photographing a house?
« on: Tuesday 22 August 06 10:39 BST (UK) »
Hello all you sandgroping Rootschatters (and I know you are out there!)  ;D

My great-great-grandfather's brother, Richard Septimus HAYNES, was a big-time barrister and politician in WA in the 1880s-1920s.  Apparently he lived in a house called "Windsor Hall", at 36 Queens Crescent, Mt Lawley.  I believe it has been considered for heritage listing (not sure if it was ever scheduled, though).

Does anyone live nearby, or travel past, who could take a piccy of the house for me?

Yours in easterly remoteness

hi Prue,
    Don't get north of the river too often but I shall keep it in mind, don't hold your breath though, cos it could be ages.

I sometimes go close to Mount Lawley, will have to try and remember to pack my camera in the car net time, I only go down that way to take the wife for a shopping trip to buy Asian food, but will try my best, give us a week or two and hope I remember the camera.

THanks to both of you, there is no rush for the piccy so whenever you can get there will be just fine  :)

The house in question is surrounded by trees and has an ugly building next door, It would have been a beautiful place when it was built, still a nice house, has verandahs around the side in a semi circular fashion. could just get a glimpse of the side not a bad shot of the front, I have six will post two to start with.

WOW  :o

What a beautiful place!

Pity about what looks like a six pack next door...

Wonder if I can claim ancestral land/property rights on the house?  ;D

It is just across the road from Perth College Girls boarding school, I can just imagine the old lawyer sitting on the verandah looking over at the girls playing crocket, hoping for a glimse of ankle as he swilled down his gin and tonic, that was before the red brick monstrosity was built of course.

Sorry, got to butt in here ... wow! That is one gorgeous house!!
Well looked after and with a lovely garden too. It's always a shame when such homes have monstrosiites built so close to them - should be a law against it!
Lovely nevertheless.
