Corner Hunter & Telford Sts Newcastle, East End,  Built as The Wombah Flats in 1920
  • 1910 - Charles Treleven, 1910-1920, Wateman
  • 1920 - Built as the Wombah Flats in Telford Street
  • 1930 - The Vienna Cafe. The building was built in 1910, it was over the road from the California and on the corner of Hunter and Telford Streets, The original Vienna Cafe was fitted out by businessman Kurt Picardi back in the early years.  I recall, around 1958 the Vienna was totally renovated by the new owner Demetrios (Jim) K. Kolivas who was also known by his stage name Valentino or Rudy. just after his return from a stint in Hollywood.
  • 1979 - The building was demolished, now part of Pacific Park.
  • The Vienna Cafe .. I recall the owner, Demetrios had bought one of the first black & white television sets in the neighbourhood. He had it placed in the back room of the Cafe. As I was living just a few doors down the street in Hellenic Court, he invited me in to watch TV anytime....  The TV intrigued me so much but not as much as the TV antenna installation...  I was stunned at watching the TV Antenna installers putting up a 50 foot mast up on the roof of the building.... Then for weeks i would sit outside the cafe and stare at this 'Antenna on the roof' and thinking " how does all this work ?"  What goes down those two wires?, What makes this thing tick !!, How do those things appear on the screen through a couple of of bits of wire.... For those that know me, "The rest is History"....

The building of the Newcastle Police Station and Lock-Up was completed in 1861. Mortimer Lewis Jnr designed a single storey building under the direction of James Barnet.In 1867 a kitchen block was added to the rear and other alterations carried out between 1870-1890 included additional cells. Symmetrical extensions were added, which enlarged the Hunter Street facade, and a brick perimeter wall was built in 1882. Aligned with the corners of these new extensions, the wall provided secure exercise yards.
  • 1903 - The Newcastle Court HouseIn 1890 Government Architect Walter Vernon added a second storey over the front section of the building.

By 1832 James Pawsey kept the The Ship Inn, although in 1831 and 1832 he was issued a publican's license for The Australian Inn. The Ship Inn was situated on or close to the site of the future Great Northern Hotel in Scott Street. By 1841, James Hannell had taken over the licence for The Ship Inn.

  • William Henry Paling (1825-1895), musician, merchant and philanthropist, was born on 1 September 1825 at Woerden, Netherlands, son of John Paling, pianoforte manufacturer. He was trained in music under Berthold Tours, a leading violin pedagogue, who favoured Paling as a pupil and made possible his appointment as violin teacher at the Academy in Rotterdam. In later advertisements he described himself as 'first violinist of the Royal Holland Academy' and as director of an academy of music in that country. He sailed for Sydney and arrived in 1853.
    Paling attracted quick recognition as a music teacher and entrepreneur. He offered private tuition in both violin and piano, and was also a 'professor of music' at Springfield College, a ladies' boarding school founded at Darlinghurst by Lady Murray.
    From the same period dates the first W. H. Paling music warehouse at 83 Wynyard Square, 'an unpretentious place, built of timber and galvanized iron, and surrounded by an uneven wooden fence'. As composer he issued his 'Sydney Railway Waltz' to commemorate the inauguration of the Sydney to Parramatta railway on 26 September 1855. Later that year he appeared in concerts as soloist in the Beriot concerto and in association with Edouard Boulanger, Flora Harris, Sara Flower and the Sydney Philharmonic Society; the most favoured venue was the concert room of the Royal Hotel. In November Paling announced the opening of a 'New South Wales Academy of Music arranged on a continental system'. It was established at 5 Bligh Street although the notices were issued from Paling's residence at 66 Macquarie Street. He also inaugurated a Quartette and Glee Club for Gentlemen Amateurs, and a society, Erudito Musica, which first met in January 1856. In that year he assumed exclusive direction of the Academy of Music, took charge of piano classes at the School of Arts, appeared as organist with the Sydney Choral Society and conducted a Philharmonic Society concert.
    The favourable economy of the golden years generated demand for imported European pianofortes and local topical sheet music. Paling obtained an agency from European pianoforte manufacturers and his commercial enterprises rapidly brought him affluence and influence.

  • Government Farm. The development of a government farm inland from the township. A cottage and guardhouse building was constructed on the east side of the creek around 100m east of the subject site (much later also the site of the Palais Royale) Produce was grown on the banks of the creek, the farm being worked by convict labour under watch by military guards. Cottage Creek today derives its name from this first Government Cottage on the site. Reverend Lancelot Threkeld occupied the cottage from 9th May 1825, and immediately described its location as being "“in a very lonely situation a mile and a half from the town" .
    Threkeld recorded an encounter with the Aboriginal inhabitants of the site a few days after his arrival: On the Wednesday evening, 11 May 1825, Threlkeld records that natives had assembled around his house cooking a kangaroo. After they had eaten, they came to invite him and his family to see their dance “which was on account of our arrival among them.” He noted that they were naked and that when “they had concluded they thanked us for our visit and wished us good night.
