84-90 Hordern Street, Newtown. Sydney, New South Wales

Unpretentious single storey rows of narrow cottages like these are the glue that ties together many of Sydney’s Victorian streetscapes.  While not as heroic two and three storey rows they play an equally important role.  This particular row appears to date to the early 1860s.  To address the uneven slope of the street, the terrace is split into two compartments of paired terraces, the hallways of which run side by side with a single room and double hung window at the front of each.
