Thee terraces like one big house (almost), Albert Park, 1885

Original post 22 October 2019

Vermont Terrace, #AlbertPark, 1885; a rather classical design for that date, instead of the typical 1880s boom style eclecticism, maybe trying to look like a great big house, featuring a fine large #pediment, flanked by simple balustrades (prob missing urns) atop partly walls that are designed like #pilasters on a #rusticated ground level. Odd but nice. It’s on Cardigan Place which is the eastern end of the outer curve of the #stvincentplace subdivision, but they managed to have a flat front and parallel walls, then slightly angled garden end side boundaries.
