Toorak Bowls Club

Repost 2018:

The rather nice #ToorakBowlsClub, a timber vernacular structure, first part dating from 1914 – might be the symmetrical gabled bit on the left – with the other part featuring #neoclassical columns and multi pane windows, maybe it’s #capecodstyle ? apparently dating from the 1950s. Can’t find anything much on Trove, but @stonningtonlibraries has opening pics from 1940 and 1954, the latter showing the classical posts. Probably like many clubhouses it was added to and altered more than once.
