    Wonderful pictures about Bondi Rd. I lived at 119 Bondi Rd from 1958 till 1964. That year
    my parents migrate back to Holland and unfortunally I remember a littlebit about our
    house, but I can’t remember how it looked like. I’ve never seen pictures of it when I
    was older and when I was back in Sydney in 2005 on a holiday (first time after 41 year)
    I discovered that our house was replaced by a hotel. I really like to see an original
    picture of our house before they built the hotel. Maybe somebody has one or can show
    me where to find it on the internet. 119 Bondi Rd is near the corner on the same site en close to the Post Office nr 127.

    Thanks anyway.

    Hi Peter,

    I work for a documentary production company in Sydney, Northern Pictures. We are currently producing a series for the History Channel about Australian inventions.

    One of our stories, is that of Mrs Myra Juliet Taylor. With more than 30 inventions and patents to her name, Myra was a woman beyond her time!

    Whilst researching for Myra I came across your amazing collection of photographs of Bondi in the early 20th Century. We’re particularly interested in the image of Bondi road in 1914. (

    I am wondering whether you own the original photograph and if so, whether you would be happy for us to use it in our production?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Kind regards,

  4. Natasha …. I probably picked up the shot from a series of Bondi pics posted on FBook by a bloke named George Samios. But seeing as it’s over 100 years old, I think you would be safe to use it.

    Thanks Pete. I’d love to get in contact with George if you could email me a way I could do this? Can’t seem to find him online.

    Cheers for your time!
