Photo #2815, 12 August 1897. Prospect House was built in 1886 on the corner of Adelaide and Point Streets for Captain William Dockray Jackson (1827-1895). Captain Jackson was Port Pilot and Superintendant of Rottnest Island 1867-1885. The Jackson family lived here until 1897. Later it became a boarding house, home of a music teacher, a doctor's surgery, was converted into flats and was demolished in 1967. Taken 12 August 1897.

I can't remember ever seeing another private house in Fremantle where the veranda apparently extended out over the public footpath.
