Fulton Block

Pictures from Gerry Linstead 303 entry, Mike Allen 305 entry, Allan Jarrett 109 entry and Rowly Fielder 151 entry.

It is commonly said that Fulton Block was built in memory of John Duncan Bertie FULTON C.B., R.F.A. (1876 - 1915) at a cost of 250,000, bequeathed by "his widow, Lady FULTON"

However There seems to be no record of JDBF ever marrying. Nor any evidence that, if he had, his widow would have been referred to as "Lady Fulton". In his will apart from his 'cars, guns and furniture' which he left to his executor, the remainder of his assets were bequeathed to a Mrs Violet Corcoran.

Other sources say that the money was donated by His Mother, who apparently died before him. Its a mystery!
