    Recollections is very good - but don't take it all for granted. Like any historical document it needs to be looked at in context and not in the same way as a modern history book.

    Hmm... It probably wasn't a church. Looking at old maps there was no church on Brunswick Place. Saying that, the map doesn't explicitly show any chimney either.

    I believe it was an English Presbytarian Chapel, called St Georges. From the maps I have it seems to have been built in the early 19th century and disappears somewhere in the 1930s-40s.

    From what I can gather it was orignally a house called 'Elmswood House', built between 1850 and 1890. As late as 1982 I can find a reference to the Salvation Army still calling it Elmswood House.
