Drummond Terrace: 93-105 Drummond Street, Carlton. Melbourne, Victoria

Drummond Terrace (built 1890-1891 to the design of Walter Scott Law) is the longest and largest three storey terrace row in Melbourne in one of Carlton’s most terraced wide streets.  The row of seven triple storey terraces features long rendered loggia of round arches and balustrades, notably deviating from the popular filligree style of the period. A central free classical pediment and blind porthole marks the mid terrace, while interesting false chimney motifs mark the mid point of each individual terrace in the row.
