Early Early English, Arthur Plaisted in St Kilda, 1920.

Not a lot to see (#damntrees) but this 1920 #blockofflats in Barkly Street #StKilda is important because it’s a very early example of #OldEnglish (aka #MockTudor), though this case it’s also a bit Arts & Crafts, look at those #shingles, needs a paint badly though. Designed by #ArthurPlaisted, who did lots of flats, and it’s also early-ish for flats. Another quirk is that it’s built around and in front of a Victorian house, like so many in my suburb.
