Another charmer in #SouthMelbourne, probably 1880s, when #polychromebrick was all the rage. I’ve realised that the streets around here have lots more to admire than say back in the 80s because so much has been restored, paint taken off, verandahs put back etc. One positive to come out of #gentrification. 2009 streetview shows this painted white with a simple verandah and a picket fence. This looks much better, except for the use of charcoal paint, which Victorian would never ever have done.
