Spring Street Mission House done over first time in, well, maybe forever.

The Anglican #MissionToTheStreetsAndLanes was treated a bit better than the #ElmsFamilyHotel by the @australianunity office thing; they just took out a back corner (that kitchen!) and kept the rest of it more or less intact, though I didn’t get to see the upper floors this time where the nuns once lived. I did see that floor back in 2016 so here’s some before pics (including the front, because cars). It was built in 1913 around an 1870s dance hall (where ‘single women’ could hang around), I guess the ground level room was it, but it got a conc roof in 1913 so maybe just the walls were left. Nice to see the stair is definitely still there, despite not meeting any kind of codes !
