It is numbered as 47a Louis Street, is still there and was later converted to a shop. This area, bordered by Francis Street, Hamilton Place and Louis Street, was demolished and rebuilt as Hamilton Gardens and Back Francis Street was renamed as such.

The remaining section of Back Francis Street, running from Hamilton Place to Frankland Place, was renamed Frankland Grove and is to the left of the white property mentioned above.
