ARCHITECTURE

There is a central door flanked by thrust bays. The thrust bays feature pairs of double hung sash windows. Half-timbered gables are located over each thrust bay. The roofscape features a pair of chimneys with rendered caps.

1931 - FOOTBALL PRIZE TO FREMANTLE Of 2000 odd entries In last week's football competition that sent in by KEITH PAYNE, 33 Allen-street, East Fremantle, has been adjudged the winner. He will be forwarded a cheque for £3 3s. Again the competitors gave convincing proof of their ability to judge the form of the teams. Although the South Fremantle-Subiaco match was widely regarded as likely to favour Subiaco, no less than 312 of the competitors anticipated a South Fremantle victory. A substantial majority expected Perth to defeat Claremont-Cottesloe, while East Fremantle and West Perth both commanded a large following...The winner showed sound judgement in assessing the relative merits of the two teams...(Reference)
