Aunt Mary in ar­ti­cle was no mys­tery

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion -

IN the prop­erty re­view in the Septem­ber 8 edi­tion about 106 Rail­way Street, Cottes­loe, it was re­ported that the name Aunt Mary’s was a mys­tery.

There was spec­u­la­tion that it might have been some­one called Muriel. This is not so; the woman was Mary Gillespie who lived in the house for more than 50 years un­til her death in the 1980s, then her nephew Drew lived there and re­stored the house.

This in­for­ma­tion is in a 2008 news­pa­per clip­ping in the lo­cal history files of The Grove Li­brary. Betty Lee, Cottes­loe.
