I spotted this terrace house in Canning Street, Carlton North and I like the simplicity of the decoration with the brick pattern on facade repeated, in an enlongated version, on the wall inside the porch.
The front of the building sits closer to the footpath than its older neighbour so I wonder if it is a case of a moderne makeover of a Victorian era house.
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.
