This lot is deliminated by Inverness, Dumbarton, and Grampian Roads. It was likely sold in 1930 when in this area middle-class European houses were built. Many of these were pairs of detached houses with mirrored plan, probably built in the early 1930s, when Art Deco style was at its peak.
On this lot, Houses 45 - 47 Grampian Road (Sun Hok Building), today Bethel Bible Seminary, was built.
