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.

Cop a deco at this.

Why limit yourself to just the Corinthian look, when you can bestow a bitta art deco on the Hampton Road streetscape as well?

The original owners must've been Freemasons.

Not that I've got anything against Freemasons.

(In the same kinda way they've got nothing against Catholics).
