Subsequent Building Alterations
James Kilfoy‘s historic cottages located at 69, 71 and 73 Abbotsford street have sadly been demolished replaced with a commercial showroom that has no front or back garden space.
This is the 1895 MMBW map. The valued front and back yard open garden space marked green which these 3 Victorian era terrace homes once had has all since been lost and are now totally built over by the commercial redevelopment.
