Uninteresting Art Deco

Original post 10 March 2020

Not everything built in the 1930s is delightful Art Deco. This is in #GreyStreetStKilda. No detailing whatsoever, just one curve but no streamlining, in fact the rectangular #steelframedwindows with expressed lintels is a bit like a factory. This block might be by #GeorgeJohnston who was known for doing many rather plain blocks in the St Kilda/Elwood area. I’m told it’s 1940, and that the windows closest to the corner are actually to the stair landing, and were originally open, but still, boring !
