Discovery (Post#68) : John Lomas Cottage or Buckingham Palace ?
Photos of the day are all about Lomas Cottage which commonly known as Buckingham Palace since Warder Buckingham lived in the cottage. This was built for John Lomas, an ex-convict and became ‘Imperial Pauper’ for whom the Government provided housing and provisions. Because of my curiosity with John Lomas as Imperial Pauper, I found another page which wrote something about him which also questions why an ex-convict for many times, will have its own cottage and even ration supply for his living? To see the article please visit here. The cottage is now being used as exhibition space in the island. These photos are part of Rottnest Island Tour October 2016.
