History

Holdsworth Street was originally named Doonan Street; the change of name occurred c. 1901. Joseph Doonan was the Comptroller of the Prison and J. Doonan & Sons were also storekeepers in Adelaide Street. Lionel Holdsworth owned a large amount of land in the area and after his death in 1901 the street name was changed.
The shop was originally a bakery for Thomas Henry Day, baker, who resided next door in the two storey house built c1850. It has been an ice cream factory, grocery and mixed business store and by 1982 Seubert's antique shop. It was restored in 1978.
Currently (2002), appears vacant.

The house is a two storey residence dating from c1850. The residence was possibly intended to be the start of a row of terraced housing. Thomas Henry Day, baker, was resident from c1904 to c1930 with his bakery next door. It was restored in 1978.
Currently (2013), residence.
