Cottages - 'Eringah'

Eringah was built in Springwood by John Lawler (see blog entry) in the latter part of the 19th century. The sandstone cottage still exists and is located in Railway Avenue.  Lloyd Hamilton Bunting and his family rented the cottage in the 1960s following the departure of the nuns who resided there.  Later, Lloyd Hamilton Bunting built a family  home on Hawkesbury Road.  Lloyd, an American serviceman, had married Australian born Pauline Prentice.  Anne Kirk (nee Bunting) stated that before the present highway was built,  the property stretched across to what is now Jim Aitkens Real Estate (previously Harry New's garage) The photograph below shows 'Eringah' when the Bunting family lived there and before the Bundah family erected the tower which can be seen from the highway today.
