Frankston Primary School; two stages, both by #PercyEverett, Chief Architect of the #PublicWorksDepartment, and very characteristic, with that horizontal sunshade running all round and through vertical windows, and two tones of brick plus render. I thought the two storey end looked like maybe a good attempt to copy his style from the 80s or 90s, so neat, few details, but it’s 1945 (!), and was added to the earlier slightly more elaborate one storey section, built in 1938. Both parts have new aluminium window frames, chunkier than the original steel ones.
