This house at 11 Groom Street Clifton Hill was where Rita Jamieson’s father lived for a time during the First World World War.  Rita was the first woman Collingwood Councillor,  elected in 1963. You can see more details of an earlier layout in this turn of the century Melbourne and Metropolitan Boards of Works map. You can see the bath, copper and kitchen sink marked as well as the closet.  You can also see the relationship of this single-storeyed, single-fronted house to the related pairs of houses at 3-5 and 7-9 Groom Street and to the shop on the corner.
