A repository of photographs of leadlight in homes in the Inner Western Suburbs of Sydney.
Main Period: Victorian
Leadlight apparent at No's 9 & 17
When you walk down Lorne Street it is is obviously a very old street developed in the 1880's or 90's. It feels quite quaint.
The northern side of Lorne Street is shown on this 1886 subdivision of the Tavistock Estate. Urana Street is now Smith Street.
The southern side of Lorne Street is shown in this partial plan of the Somerset Estate in 1887. Not the Campbell land from Sophia Campbell's estate.
No 9 is a beautiful Victorian house (c.1888) with some wonderful Victorian leadlight in the front door panels, sidelights & tops and in the fanlight. The design is typical of the late Victorian era, almost austere and very geometric.
