Brighton Road's "Franklin Villa" circa 1928

This great historical photo of Franklin Villa on Brighton Rd was posted on Flickr today, which is a website where you can find and post images. Have a search under Highgate Hill and you’ll find images from around our area as well as from other Highgate Hills around the world. Franklin Villa was built between 1888 and 1892 and was offered for sale last year for $2.6 million. This image is held by the John Oxley Library, State Library of Queensland but the photographer is unknown. If you know who took the shot, please let me know.
