Completion date from "Names of Buildings", which gives the address as 16 Ice House Street.
There's a foundation stone dated 1965, which suggests there was a third generation between the 1922 building on this site and this current 2001 building. Can anyone confirm?
It is the club's 150th anniversary in 2016 and that have been on the one site the whole time.
Old maps show the first club building, opened in 1866, was on Shelley Street (http://gwulo.com/node/6116).
They moved to Ice House Street in 1922 (http://gwulo.com/node/34331). I'm interested to know if there have been two or three generations of building on the Ice House Street site.
You are right, I was told by a member that they had been at Ice House st the whole time but it can't be so. I do think they have been continiously at Ice House St since they moved.
