"Belmiers" and Violet Street, Essendon
"Belmiers" looking north along Violet Street. "Belmiers" was at 91 Buckley St, Essendon. The house is still standing, but renumbered 155 Buckley Street. Due to the generosity of Walter J R Barber of Warrnambool, we now have a number of photos of "Belmiers" and the two young men who left from this address to serve in the great war - Harold Snape and his brother Robert Snape. We also have an addition to photos from the Essendon State School, this time from about 1901.
