The third important #Moderne house in the Toorak area is #Carlaminda, cnr Toorak and Lansell; looks like a block of flats but actually a big house taking up most of the block. Built in 1938, the architects were #RhysHopkins and Shannon.
It was built for Dr Fenton-Bowen who was a society GP who was prosecuted a couple of times for ‘causing a miscarriage’ but not found guilty. It wasn’t all backyards, a good dr could find a way around the laws, and follow up care too. B&W photos Graeme Butler from the 1982 before the high walls, and some #steelframedwindows replaced.
Hasn’t been sold for a long time, so only found a couple of interior pics- looks glam though, and intact !
