Repost 2018 :
Travancore, 1899, #RiversdaleRoad, down the hill towards the Alamein line crossing, designed by #UssherandKemp. This features as the archetypal #FederationQueenAnne house (Victorian version) in the 1970s ‘Architecture in Australia’ (though they don’t all have a fabbo corner turret); anyway they’re usually single storey, with a tall hip roof in red #marseillestile (imported), out of which sprout multiple gables, facing at least two sides of the house, with a #turnedtimber #verandah wrapping the corner, and tall chimneys, all in #redbrick. Beverley Ussher and #HHKemp joined forces in 1899 and immediate started designing dozens in this style, and other architects and builders followed, with some variations. So, they started it, I didn’t know that. Real Estate photos from 2012.
