Kennedy Town Glassworks / Temporary Plague Hospital [????- ]
I am trying to find out the exact location of the Kennedy Town Glassworks which was used as a hospital during the Plague of 1894. I have looked at the 1895 map of the Mount Davis area, including Kennedy Town shown on Gwulo but can't find it.
Also does anyone have any information about Glassworks itself, dates, manufacturing what exactly and what became of the buildings post Plague?
There is a photo of the Glassworks circa 1898 which later became the Plague Hospital on Page 73 of "City of Victoria" published by the Urban Council. it shows the Glassworks to be on today's Victoria Road just up the slope and past the end of Kennedy Town. See:
In a small garden at the end of Kennedy Town, I think there is a small memorial of the Plague Hospital.
Thanks moddsey, that was quick work. Very helpful.
If anyone has more information about the glassworks itself rather than when it was requisitioned as a hospital I would be very grateful.
