This is an interesting house in Portland, Australia. It is quite plain but the rounded porch give it away as a house probably from the 1930s or 40s. There is also the Art Deco shopfront at the front of the house. No longer open as a shop and with half the window boarded up I can only wonder what it was like in years gone past.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
