Semi-detached Cottages In Frampton Avenu

Lots in Frampton Avenue were offered for sale as part of McGee’s Subdivision in 1905.  It is amazing to think that the blocks in this subdivision were 20 feet wide and 154 feet deep (6.1metres x 47 metres). This was clearly a subdivision to provide houses for workers. As a result, there are some lovely early small Federation cottages and semi-detached cottages in the street. As a general rule, these workers houses did not have leadlight, though there are some surviving remnants.
