Fletcher Christian's House?

Does anyone know for sure that this was Fletcher Christian's House? It was certainly demolished before Fletcher's grandson's house. The upper postcard, issued by the Pitcairn Islands Study Group in the UK in 2002, used the same original photograph as the lower card. The lower, much older card was recently sold on eBay for £108. The description on the photograph used to print the PISG card was "Last of the Mutineers Houses and the oldest on the Island". Both these cards will appear in the new Pitcairn Postcard Catalogue which is currently in production (350 scans to date!).
