House, 22 South Street was built c. 1910 for Walter Hall. A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dating from that time shows a brick cottage with a full length front verandah. There was also a full length rear verandah, a water closet half way down the back yard and a small weatherboard outbuilding set against the back fence. A right of way ran to the east of the lot giving access to the rear of four cottages in Price Street.

Walter Hall owned the cottage until c. 1940. It was numbered 32 South Street during this time.
