Could be worth a look.

With the help of GR members, I traced the history of a large Victorian house. It was quite interesting to follow its progress from a boarding school for young ladies, through a one family home, how it was divided into apartments, which were eventually further subdivided & sold off individually. Some are now owner-occupied while others are rentals.
