4-22 Gourlay Street, Balaclava. Melbourne, Victoria

This impressive row of ten double storey terraces is located in a well preserved precinct near the site of the Balaclava railway station.  Originally in polychrome brick with unpainted rendered parapets, few in the row are in original condition. The location of these groups of terraces near the railway siding may be explained by the proximity to the station (in the 1980s a new station was built after the old one was demolished, perhaps with platforms closer to the main shopping strip on Carlisle Street).
