“The Witch’s Hat”, 148 Palmerston Street, Perth.
Built circa 1898. A large two-storey residence with a bow verandah and a turret with Gothic influences.
Built for William Dartnell, an engineer and one of the designers of the Horseshoe and Barrack Street bridges. (Oh yes, I must show those as well very soon).
These days it is a Backpacker’s Hostel with all mod cons. Their website contains the information that, “We even supply laminated song sheets in the female showers! (Whose idea was that anyway?)“.
