A repository of photographs of leadlight in homes in the Inner Western Suburbs of Sydney.
Main Period: Victorian - Federation
Leadlight apparent at No’s 14, 22, 26, 28, 30 & 32.
The fairmount Estate was Auctioned some time in the 1880's. The advertising on the right is wonderful. The development of Fairmont undoubtedly occurred in the 1880’s and 1890’s when the area was more likely to be regarded as part of Summer Hill. The Street has a mixture of free standing dwellings and two storey terraces.
No’s 30 and 32 are a pair of Federation semi-detached houses each with leadlight in a three panel casement window and in their fanlights beautiful on the verandah. These may not be original designs but they certainly look very beautiful and they’ve been very sympathetically done if they’re reproductions. Its is difficult to spot the original from the street and that is a good sign.
