Hi James.

Being a Sinclair myself and having had Sinclair ancestors living in Herston, I got very interested in your photograph. Can you give me any history of this building. Though I am not expecting it to have any relationship to my Sinclair line, nothing ever seems to have.

Sorry I meant Richard not James.

According to Wilma Paulley (nee Sinclair):

"The Sinclair house in Herston was my Great, Great Grandparents house. My Father was brought us at the Rough cottage, my Grandfather being the pier master. My Grandfather was also a diver and he had a lot to do with the German ships being brought up after the 1st WW. My Father, John Sinclair, was also a diver and he sunk the defence nets following the sinking of the Royal Oak".
