Cal Bung delight in Footscray

Aptly named #ThePebbles, this 1920 house on #GeelongRoad in #Footscray is a #CalifornialBungalow on steroids ! Fat pebbly piers supporting complicated woodwork with wildly cantilevered brackets and spiky edged pergolas, and all perfectly intact ! We learned about this in archi school but I’d never stopped to see it up close. Designed by #SchreiberAndJorgenson, not sure what they did before but later did a few Catholic Churches including the Xavier Chapel, a bit of a step up ! Then in the later 30s #JustusJorgensen set up Monstsalvat.
