Melton Court, Elwood, 1951

Interesting block of flats on the edge of the Elwood shops in Ormond Road, I could tell it was 50s or maybe late 40s, like prewar but with jaunty 50s things like the porch and stair railings. The agents sales blurb actually says ‘by noted architect #SirBernardEvans’ who did many flats from the 1930s into the 50s. Another source says these are 1951, so I was close, and Evans dud other blocks for the company that built this, so likely Evans.

Appear to all be the same one bed arrangement, with kitchen hatch, only change being bigger windows on front units. The #creambricks on the front a bit patchy though.
