ARCHITECTURE

“Hygeia”

HISTORY

1931 Storm Apparently originating near the river at North Fremantle, the storm partially unroofed the home of Mr. A. Bulgin, in Hillside-road. East Fremantle, and thence its course was clearly indicated in a swathe of destruction about 150 yards wide in the direction of Palmyra…Mrs. Bulgin (see Easton Sisters in Notable People) said she thought the house had been struck by lightning as she awoke to the sound of heavy thunder and saw the play of vivid lightning. Strangely enough, the damaged portion of the roof of their home is on the sheltered side of the house away from the direction in which the storm evidently began. (reference)
