This morning I brought along the camera to show off my "hood". There is a mix of housing types but it is typically Queenslander style homes which dot the suburban landscape.
There are also a handful of delicious mid-century style homes but I'll show them to you later this week.
|1930s triple gable Queenslander which looks extremely pretty in real life. I love the leadlight windows.|

There is some funny extension thing on the back of this home, which I'm choosing to ignore. It looks like it's being renovated - such wonderful potential.
Nothing says Queensland more than wrap-around verandahs!

The home above always captivates me. I think it is because of all the junk that is piled onto the front and side verandahs. I'm assuming it is being renovated...or maybe there are just hoarders living there.
|It is the same house as the one above taken in the 70s. Remarkably, very little has changed.|
|This is another pretty home - neat and tidy with a traditional garden.|
I'm rather taken with the Neutra-style house numbers on the front fence.

Whoa! Now, this house is enormous, taking up half the street block. I think someone rich lives here. There is a tennis court, a pool and a guest house.
|It goes on...|
And then there is the more humble post-war style home.

We often congregate on the street outside this house when there is a fireworks show in the City.
