ASHFIELD

Alma Street

Main Period: Victorian -  Interwar

Leadlight apparent at No’s 2, 5, 7, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 & 27

Some subdivisions of Alma Street and Shepherd Streets occurred in the mid to late 1880’s. Today Alma Street is a quiet tree lined street that runs off Arthur Street and the houses back on to Pratten Park. There are some wonderful examples of leadlight in and around the entrances to some of the homes.

Alma Street

No 2 is a Federation house built in 1912 with a great front door entrance set of the front door panel, sidelights and fanlight. They are beautiful examples of Federation leadlight.

The Ashfield Heritage Study 1991-1992 describes this house as having ‘good transitional style and detail, with features of both Victorian and Federation periods, almost completely intact.’  But there is no mention of the beautiful leadlight entrance ensemble.
