Illustrations House is a row of two double storey Edwardian terraces. The date embellished in the facade is 1903, sources indicate that construction was completed in 1905. Named for the photography business that has operated in the adaptively reused premises since the early 1970s.1
As a lover of both the gold rush city of Bendigo and the variety of terraced housing to be found there it is suprising to find that while heritage overlays exist across most of Bendigo, this single storey row of three homes simply named “Terraces” in suburban Ironbark is afforded no heritage protection. This is despite an Ironbark heritage study being published as recently as 2010.1
Glebe, like Paddington is one of those areas where you can almost get lost in the uniformity of the long stretches of double storey terraces. Burton Street, set near the railway line, while not possessing many homes of great individual character is typically Sydney, but refreshingly different in its Victorian era charm with its narrow rising aspect and hodge podge of double and single storey terraces and styles. The longest row in the street is this unnamed row of five, erected in 1881.
This row of fifteen double storey terraces, erected in 1897 is the longest remaining in Perth and Western Australia.

Purchased for speculative development in 1895, the land was part of the Northbridge estate, however was aimed at a middle class clientele and began selling in 1897. The row was purchased by Hyan Hester in 1921 and the houses progressively sold to individuals. 2
It was condemned by the government in the 1950s but was fortunately saved.3
The terrace received heritage listing in April 1996.4
Shakspeare Terrace (an obvious if curious mispelling of the famous Shakespeare) is a row of eight double storey Victorian Italianate terraces positioned as one of the most visible in Melbourne commanding a prime position between the Punt Road Oval (and iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground) and Richmond railway station, it is also one of the most sadly neglected terraces in Melbourne.
