Marrickville

Black Street

Main Period: Federation

Leadlight apparent at No’s 9 & 21.

A superb exasmple of an early Federation  symmetrical house (c.1900).

Black Street haas a mixture of late Victorian houses and Federation houses and some semi-detached houses but the only leadlight that remains is in two Federation houses. Black Street overlooks Enmore Park as was probably subdivided just prior to Federation in the late 1890’s. Some of the house have retained their original features, including some fine examples of Federation leadlight. It is another of the many streets in Marrickville paved with bricks.

No 9 is a lovely early Federation house (c.1900) with leadlight in the fan light above the front door panel.
