From the sounds of all of this, no original 17th century gable seems to exist any more, apart from the ones on Molesworth St.

If the house on Leeson St. was only built after the 1970’s I am surprised at what a good quality replica it is. I don’t understand though why a group of people would tear down Georgian structures to build it though.

I think it would be fantastic if the 1916 Surrender House were incorporated into the new development planned for the area, whilst being refacaded back to its original Dutch Billy appearance. I think it would look something completely different in Moore St.

I would love to see some more of these gables restored as I find the style very interesting……………….but alas, its not likely.
