I had a grandstand view of the disaster from the Kerami balcony without fully realising the calamity of it all. I can vividly recall in the afternoon when checking the remains, turning on a tap and getting scalded with what should have been cold water!

The Rendezvous guesthouse, owned by the Ross family, had a very short life. For, although the guesthouse was built during the early 1920s, it burnt down on 13 January 1934.
