Easton Terrace: 138-158 Charles Street, Abbotsford. Melbourne, Victoria

Easton Terrace is one of Melbourne’s longest rows of polychrome terrace houses, right in the middle of Charles Street Precinct, one of Melbourne’s most uniform Victorian workers cottage streetscapes.  Abbotsford is one of the few areas in inner Melbourne to remain working class right up until the 2000s when gentrification began due primarily to the proximity of the city.  There are still many working class households and as a result many of the suburbs terraces are still waiting restoration – others however appear beyond salvation.
