Hidden Melbourne #1

#HiddenMansion, Taldara, later Shirley, 1868, #CrouchandWilson, built for David Rosenthal, I presume Jewish. This house, now hidden behind 60s flats at 40 Alma Road, #StKilda, backs on to 17 #CharnwoodGrove, where St Kilda’s first #synagogue was built in 1872, also designed by Crouch & Wilson, who then went on to design the East Melb synagogue in 1877.
