A repository of photographs of leadlight in homes in the Inner Western Suburbs of Sydney.
Main Period: Victorian - Federation
Leadlight apparent at
Hill Street is a relatively short street now and does not appear on the main subdivision plans of early Dulwich Hill... others have not been located. It may have originally extended to what is now Terry Road (another short street) before the railway (now the light rail) cut its way through the suburb. Very few houses have their frontages on Hill Street and those that do are late Victorian and early Federation which suggests that it may have originally been a service lane.
No 16 is an unusual and beautiful Federation weatherboard cottage (c.1904) with some amazing leadlight in a four panel casement window with arched fan lights on the left, the front door entrance in the double and arched sidelights and tops and in the arched fanlight. The whole lot is extraordinarily impressive particularly as it is in a weatherboard cottage. The quality of the joinery and the leadlight is not normally associated with weatherboard cottages.
