Guesthouse on or near Raglan Street?

A question from Nina:

In 1964 I lived in a large guest house, which had multiple rooms, and verandahs which looked over towards Garden Island. I dont recall the owners, but they had a daughter Theresa. Behind this guest house, at the end of the road, was a large sunken tennis court. Can anyone assist in identifying the building, and if it still stands? There was a playground/park up the road, heading away from the Point on the Right, suggesting Raglan Street. There was also a small ferry stop opposite at that time.

Please leave a comment here or email Nina direct.

Hi Nina I think you mean “The Britannic Guest House” In 1965 I Lived in the Tower on top of the building. The Owners name was Trever I can’t member the little girl’s name, can you?
The building still stands I was talking on the phone to the present owner last night.
I would very much like to hear from you.
With best wishes,
