Hedger Avenue 

Main Period: Victorian -  Interwar

Leadlight apparent at No’s 2, 4, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 & 18

Hedger Avenue runs between Frederick Street and Croydon but access is only as far as Iron Cove Creek. It is a street of Interwar Bungalows. One of the interesting things about the leadlight in Hedger Street is that the same designs were often used in several houses but in some they were inverted. In that sense there is no correct ‘way up’. This suggests that all the houses were built by the same builder at the same time and that the leadlight was made by the same people.

Hedger Avenue

No 2 is a Californian Bungalow and has two two panel casement windows on the veranda that have floral motifs in eh corner joined across the panels with a ribbon of blue glass. They could almost be described as dainty. There is a four panel casement window facing the driveway where the central design is shown but unfortunately two panels are missing. The central design is used in the small windows on the east and west sides.
