This is the nearest I can find!

Of course, as usual, the actual shot you want is always just out of view.

This shows Artic Cottage and the one next door to the right.

The camera is in Thorold Road.
Nostalgia is a thing of the past!

This is from the 1860's - I assume the property you are referring to is Belmont Cottage? If so I believe the stone steps you mention belonged to the house to the lower right (also demolished). I'm sorry I can't provide any more information regarding build date, etc.

Can anybody provide any information on the impressive 'colonial' wooden house which was at the top of the unmade road called Mount Pleasant, at the bottom of Chatham Hill? My great uncle rented the place during the 1960's. It had two very large rooms either side of the entrance door. The building was wooden and had a verandah at the front. The stone steps leading to the property are still there, but the building has long gone. Google Earth shows the property in existence in December 1960.
