Maison Murphy

Texte de la plaque sur le devant de la maison:

« Trescoe » a été construite en 1908 pour Emma Murphy par ses frères Edward et Albert, deux constructeurs locaux. À Britannia, ce type de bâtiment, caractérisé par un balcon à l’étage surmonté d’une baie semi-circulaire porte aujourd’hui le nom des frères Murphy. Le porche en retrait donne du cachet à la façade, tout comme les bardeaux à motif et la balustrade du balcon supérieur. »
