Moran’s Terrace: 100-104 Mollison Street, Bendigo. Victoria

On the southern edge of Bendigo’s CBD is this gem row of three double storey houses built and named for Maurice Moran in 1873 (as inscribed on the tympanum of the parapet).  Moran was a well known and respected resident who started as a printing foreman for the Bendigo Advertiser, Bendigo City Councillor, real estate developer and agent before moving to Melbourne and later Sydney.1 The design of residential architect T.A Nicholls2 produced a simple but stunning classically inspired row, with the most interesting features being the extensive vermiculation single storey verandah.  Unfortunately it is difficult to photograph due to a mature evergreen situated right in front of the mid terrace.
