The Signatures of Peter Ellis

2014 11 18 'Signatures' coverClick on the image of the cover of this pdf to view a 70 page supplement to the Society’s 2013 book In the Footsteps of Peter Ellis. It is copyright © 2014 but may be downloaded for personal use and will be of most interest to those who already have a copy of the book.

Arranged chronologically in 15 sections, it covers the period from 1810 (when Peter Ellis senior obtained a lease for building land in Gloucester Street) to 2014 (when a ruin in Park Road was discovered to have features which make it a candidate for further research).

In particular, section 1864 and section 1873 present evidence that a pair of semi-detached houses on Catharine Street and a restaurant on Upper Duke Street were both designed by Peter Ellis.
