This storyboard does not have a description.
Dr Logan Campbell owned part of the north shore, but then the Stanford fam bought it of him then selling it to Mrs Hammond.
Peter Brown bought it in 1876. He built a house on the corner of Clyde rd and Anzac rd. His house was then destroyed by a fire in 1930.
In Spring 26 of Sep 1876 before he passed they moved with a horse. Once arrived Browns Bay was covered with tutu. The nearest shopping centre was in Devonport. With only horses as transport.
Since there was no school in Browns Bay. A part time one was built on Hyde rd. There had to be at least 10 students to keep the school running. In 1900 there were only half a dozen families living in Browns Bay.
Still in 1900 holiday makers travelled by steam boat. So the Browns Family made the first local store and postal services.
The growing population started making more shops, a permanent school and churches. At this point Browns Bay was becoming a commercial hub of the East Coast Bays.
