A recent post on Julie's always excellent Sydney Eye blog got me thinking about the old houses in Lawson which also have names. So I am going to get started for the year by running a series on the named houses of Lawson and while I am at it you will get a chance to see some traditional Blue Mountains homes ... starting with our own home Burnbrae built around 1896. During renovations a postcard was found ... dated 1897, addressed to:
New South wales, Australia
Miss Elizabeth Chrystal was the original owner according to the land title so I guess the house has always had this name. Maybe she had Scottish links.
