Aussielyn has sent this one in with the following explanation:
Eastlake Hostel was formerly a RAAF School of Technical Training that was converted into cubicles to house immigrants and building workers post WW2.
550 men lived there in the late 1940s.
The old buildings provided community halls for the Narrabundah Prefab area & Oakes Estate.
