LATE VICTORIAN BOOM STYLE 1875 To 1892

As wealth and confidence increased, houses still resemble earlier Victorian types in form, but assume a much grander, ornate appearance incorporating elements of the Italianate and filigree styles. Freestanding houses usually have one projecting room while terraces have a flat front wall but tall ornamented parapets and projecting wing walls at each end of the verandah. Both types, but particularly terrace houses, are sited fairly close to the street

FENCE STYLE.
Fences commonly cast iron palisade and double palisade style with cast iron spears on bluestone plinth, with cast iron columns such as Lion head or Athena.
