Carlton Crescent

Main Period: Victorian - Federation 

Leadlight apparent at No’s 44A, 45, 112, 110 & 108.

Carlton Crescent appears on the original Underwood Estate Subdivision of 1878 and is clearly one of the main thoroughfares running adjacent to the railway line. A year later six lots were auctioned at the very eastern end of the Crescent in Chapman Street. It has been subject to a lot of development and redevelopment.

No 44A is a wonderful small late Victorian terrace with leadlight in the fanlight above the front door. But it is more than that beautifully late Victorian with a stained, etched bird.
