EARLY MODERN 1930 To 1940

After the Great Depression of the 1930s, single storey detached houses predominate. Set well back from the street on fairly large blocks, they exhibit a simplicity of style that reflects both economic stringency and the move towards modernism. Building forms are simple and fairly austere with limited embellishment, although the influence of a number of decorative styles such as Spanish Mission, Georgian Revival and Art Deco is apparent.
