|Weatherboard Home Speculative Build 1954|
This three bedroom weatherboard home with clay tile roof and brick chimney was one of two built at the end of Marian Court, Blackburn. The No.8 house was a mirror image of this one and both were set on larger than the average residential blocks both being at least 1/3 acre with five boundaries rather than four.
This picture was taken in about 1965 by the contributor when she was a child using her very first camera, a Kodak Instamatic. The Liquid Amber tree to the left of the picture was three times the height when City of Whitehorse listed it as protected under their significant trees and landscape survey carried out in the late 1990's. Unfortunately the tree didn't survive long after the redevelopment of the site.
The Stockfeld family were the only occupants of this house over its lifetime at this address. The property was sold after the death of the contributor's father. It was bought by a developer who removed the house in three large pieces and was trucked away. There are now three single story brick townhouses on the site.
Detail of the chimney can be see in this photograph -
