Margaret Marr Memorial Home for Boys
There is a plaque located on a rock in a park near the corner of Tingal Road and Petersen Street at Wynnum, which commemorates the Margaret Marr Memorial Home for Boys. The park is near the entrance to the new Bayshore Housing Estate.
During World War 2 the Margaret Marr Memorial Home for Boys was used as barracks for the staff of No. 23 Radar Station RAAF located at Lytton Hill near Fort Lytton. The Boys were relocated from their home to a disused hospital in Proston.
