History

Historical notes: Millers Point is one of the earliest areas of European settlement in Australia, and a focus for maritime activities.

This terrace was built circa 1910 as part of the post-plague redevelopment. An 1880 plan shows a two storey hotel on this site.

In 1958 architect John Fisher (member of the Institute of Architects, the Cumberland County Council Historic Buildings Committee and on the first Council of the National Trust of Australia (NSW) after its reformation in 1960), with the help of artist Cedric Flower, convinced Taubmans to paint the central bungalow at 50 Argyle Place. This drew attention to the importance of the Rocks for the first time. As a result, Fisher was able to negotiate leases for Bligh House (later Clyde Bank) and houses in Windmill Street for various medical societies (Lucas & McGinness, 2012).

First tenanted by Department of Housing in 1982.
