Charlotte Street is one of the oldest streets in Ashfield. Pittwood (now Pitt Wood Home for Aged Persons) was built in 1872 and it is a very imposing building at the station end of the street. Further subdivisions took place in 1907, 1912, 1919 & 1920.  As you travel north/northwest along Charlotte Street there are several nursing homes and St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School. Many of the original dwellings have been replaced by units in the 1960’s and 70’s. Some of the earlier ‘flats’ have leadlight windows in the stairwells (See No’s 52 & 91). Leadlight in the stairwell of flats from this period was reasonably common.

No 43 is an Interwar Bungalow. It has a four panel casement angled bay window. There is a very large piece if oval convex glass as the focus with and textured borders in all the panels. The design is typical of the late 1920’2 – 30’s. There is also a small window with the same central design.
