Here’s what I said last time I snapped this one a year ago : #RochesterTerrace, by far the grandest row of terraces ever built in #Melbourne, a row of 10 looking a bit like an elongated #Palladian mansion. Designed by Charles Boykett, who I’ve never heard of, but he did a fine job, though maybe the central parapet pediments are a bit over-sized. Surprised to learn it was built in two stages 10 years apart, the furtherest 6 first in 1869, the rest in 1879. Ps #StVincentPlace is also one block of St Vincent street in downtown Glasgow, named in the early 19thC, doesn’t really explain why this huge development shares the name but does explain why it’s St Vincent Place not St Vincent’s Place.
