ST SALVADORE ALFRED CASE OF ARDMILLAN RD, MOONEE PONDS.
Hopefully the attachment will attach. It looks as if St Salvadore Alfred Case died while living in the house (once at present Nos. 14-16) that had been occupied by two of the area's early private schools. The attachment is page 35 of Ray Gibb's "Early Landowners: Parish of Doutta Galla", sourced from his "Ardmillan" which resulted from extensive research of directories and rate records and gave information of every old house in the street, including Peter McCracken's mansion which stood on present Nos. 33-39, and the Chinese garden on Bailey's paddock. Case built "Rosina".
The Essendon Historical Society would probably have photos of the Sydenham and Blinkbonnie Ladies's colleges that were run in the house that stood on Nos.14-16.
It looks as if the attachment is not accepted. tonkin,If you send me a private email, I could post it to you.
