View from Musgrave Street to Sydney Amatuer Sailing Club, Kareela Road and Old Cremorne Wharf, 1962

3rd from the negative.

The eight story steel framework above Sydney Amateurs stood, like this, exposed to the seasons for well over a year. A couple of developers went under and it was eventually finished as Kareela Court at 4 Kareela Road.

The congested Mosman Bay of today was a lonnng way off.

Do you have any photos of 4 Kareela Road Cremorne prior to the development of the steel structure being built in your top photo.
When I was a baby and until I was about 3 my parents lived in the large flat attached to my Grandparents home which was 4 Kareela Road. They sold the big old home and purchased the top unit at Swept Rocks in Musgrave Street Mosman. I remember my Grandparents saying how sad they were to see the old home demolished and so many memories when with it.
