Due to the success of the Grosvenor Hotel, just 5 years after it’s construction this extension was built to furteher hotel’s frontage along George Street. In 1924, the hotel was sold to Castlemaine Brewery and this extension was sold to the Duncalfe & Co drapery business, next door. It was renamed “Duncalfe Chambers’.
