A repository of photographs of leadlight in homes in the Inner Western Suburbs of Sydney.
Main Period: Victorian
Leadlight apparent at No’s 8, 22, 26 & 30.
Shepherd Street August 2020. Much of the original houses have been replaced by light industry.
The subdivision of Shepherd Street began in the 1880’s as can be seen in the Meeks Estate. A 7 foot wide drain is shown in this plan indicating that this low land was subject to flooding.
The Meeks Estate and the Shephard Street lots in 1883
Much of this area is still prone to flooding.
No 8 is a Victorian Terrace (c.1885) with leadlight in the fanlight above the front door. The leadlight is unlikely to be original. None of the other terraces have retained any leadlight.
