Victorian – actual and not in Beaconsfield Parade

Looks like a row of Victorian houses, but most of what you see in the first photo is 1980s or later, reflecting how so many houses and even flats along the waterfront have been altered and added to. I think this started off as a row of 7 single storey houses, built late 1890s, the middle and ends with nice arched verandahs, the other four with cast iron ones. The wide two storey one I think is completely new replacing two of the latter, with some vaguely matching details, the middle one has an added top floor with lots of almost but not quite right Victorian details (and modern red brick side walls). The two end arched terraces are mostly intact, but only one of the cast iron verandah ones remains intact, another is being worked on now, possibly being restored, possibly not.
