Ulimaroa, St Kilda Road

Repost this day 2018:

Ulimaroa, another nice #StKildaRoadMansion, built 1890, probably by #LeonardJFlannagan. Fun facts : The name was made up by a Swedish geographer in 1776 for Australia, based on what he thought the Maori’s called it; it was occupied from 1890 to 1946 by the Traill family who ran shipping co #HuddartParker; then in the 60s and 70s it was hq for #REPCO. Now houses the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History, with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) in a block behind, this time not demolishing the rear wing.
