John Dungey who is most well known for his success with tobacco, was originally an ironmonger and stationer and it is consider that he ventured into tobacco upon his fathers death when he inherited his assets.

Notes


Significance

[edit | edit source]

Whilst not as prominent as the adjoining buildings, this detailed victorian filigree style house is significant in that it adds a positive character in conjunction with the three buildings built around the same time. 141 South Terrace prominently displays a detailed parapet with elaborate cornice and pediment. Whilst the cast-iron work upon the balcony verandah-balcony and the blocked quoins produce a softer frontage to the streetscape.
