Cute Edwardian on Smith Street

So cute ! #SmithStreetFitzroy, Edwardian, but heavy leaning toward Arts&Crafts. A Trove newspaper trawl tell me that it was Globe Loans from the 1880s to 1914, then WW1 recruiting, then in 1917 Lucas&Co Furs applied to register a ‘new factory’ here, employing 10 females, it sort of looks a bit industrial, though tiny, so I’d guess it’s 1917, looks about right, even though that’s the middle of the war ! Maybe the army needed furs too ? Anyway, it’s great.
