Corinthian Column

From Footscray in the east to Fremantle in the west, Australia's suburbs are dotted with them. You know the ones. The ones with the white colonnades out front. Having first emerged in the early 1950s, and as strong as brick shithouses, most of these abodes survive to this day. And best of all, they're still popping up all over the place! This blog is a tribute to that special kind of Aussie home known as the Mediterranean mausoleum.

Kalgoorlie columns

A bitta stylish Corinthian for ya, straight from Western Australia's goldfields.

Funny how money could buy style back in the very early twentieth century. These days it buys you a date with Urbane Developments.
