(Random walkies, Part I)
Barrenjoey Road. Federation Bungalow circa 1890 - c. 1915.
Extended (left end of building) at some point I'd say. Can't really tell when. The left window and the wall around it are seventies or early eighties. But I think the left quarter of the facade is the latest addition with the section between it and the veranda being possibly an earlier extension. That section could also have been part of the original veranda which was then converted to a room in the 1980s.
Blackwall Road, opposite the blue school at Park Road, houses an op shop for the Anglican church next door.
Haven't had a gander at the foundations of this one yet or its chimney or down the side so I've got no clues to its age other than its shape. Looks like it might be Victorian Georgian circa 1840 - 1890, with an addition on the front (left) in the 1980s or 1940s.
Blackwall Road. Federation Bungalow. Needs a good bit of maintenance but looks pretty close to original.
Blackwall Road. Very nice colours. That little bit of iron lace on the veranda is not part of the Federation Bungalow style (circa 1890 - c. 1915) but is nice.
Wasn't sure until I saw the pepperpot chimney that the back half of this one is Federation Bungalow. Bit it is. Seems to be in fairly good nick on the outside but the inside is probably all switched about to suit the business.
Still no change at St John the Baptist after the demolitions. Not even the foundations for the new building/s have been put in. Maybe they have to do some maintenance on the old church first, who knows.
It's raining again now. Silent misty rain with the clouds almost touching the hills and ridges. Went on another training thingy this morning when it was dry. Hour and a half. Better pick it up to 2 hours by Monday.
