#DrBowensSurgery and Townhouse, later known as Portland House, built in 1872, architect #LloydTayler, restored by @aboderestoration and @opataustralia in 2015, see my photo from 2013 (one of my first instas !) shows the ivy that had been there for decades. Just wish they’d restored/improved the 1960s ‘regency’ ground level windows – you can see the original ground level in the 1956 image.
More history: it was paid for by Henry ‘Money’ Miller, after the good dr married henry’s daughter. What a wedding present. One of a small number of the townhouses and surgeries left that once dominated the last 2 blocks of the #parisend of #collinsstreet.
