History

Duplex, 202 South Terrace and its partner at 204 were built between 1900 and 1914. In 1914/15, they were owned by Margaret Owen. The duplexes were then addressed 238 and 240 Mandurah Road. Henry Langley lived at No. 238 while No. 240 was empty.

Margaret Owen and Henry Langley had a long relationship as landlord and tenant. Henry was still living at No. 238 in 1930. At this time, Ann Read was occupying No. 240.

A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated 1954 shows 202 and 204 South Terrace as a mirror duplex pair of long, brick cottages with full length front verandahs and centrally located front sets. Both had rear verandahs and paths leading down the sides and across the backs of the cottages. The rear yards were separated by a fence.

About this time, the two duplexes entered separate ownership. They also stopped being rental properties and were occupied by their owners. Farinaccio, Natalli & Argiso were the owners of Duplex, 202 South Terrace in 1952; by 1956 it was owned by Claude Gumina. A Farinaccio owned Duplex, 204 South Terrace throughout this time.

Claude Gumina continued to own Duplex, 202 throughout the 1960s, while Duplex, 204 had a change in ownership. In 1981, the Gumina family owned both of the duplex pair.

This place was included in the list of heritage places in the City of Fremantle identified by the Fremantle Society (1979/80) - BROWN -significant for making a positive contribution to the built environment of Fremantle.
