It’s 1884. Where are we? Please send your suggestions to

The answer!

Ian Stephenson identified (and documented, see below) last month’s mystery as a stretch of St Johns Rd, including the Glebe Congregational Church, now demolished.

Wayne Carveth thought the building might be the former Rehoboth Primitive Methodist Church at 189A St Johns Rd Forest Lodge, now privately owned.

Karol Foyle also identified the location: My guess is St Johns Rd Glebe, looking towards Forest Lodge from Glebe Point Rd. The church could be the Methodist church or community hall that was at 81 St Johns Road that is now a block of flats.
