A repository of photographs of leadlight in homes in the Inner Western Suburbs of Sydney.
Main Period: Federation - Interwar
Leadlight apparent at No’s 5, 6, 7, 13, 16, 20, 29 & 38
Most of the houses in KeirAvenue were built after the end of WW1 at the start of the Californian Bungalow Age. There are a number of examples of leadlight from this period that are indicative of this transitional period.
The owner of this house has provided some invaluable information about this house. No 5 is a late Federation style house (1918) with leadlight in two two panel casement windows, one on the left and one on the verandah. The design in each of the windows is different and that is unusual. Both may be reproductions but they are very good if they are because they evoke the period. There is also leadlight in the front door panel and fanlight. The owner confirmed my original thoughts. He made the panels himself and they are indeed great!
