8 Swanston Street, Geelong. Victoria

I chose to post this freestanding terrace out of sheer sympathy as much as anything.  Extremely difficult to date, but presumably originally Victorian, this terrace has been bastardised beyond belief at some stage in its history – most probably the late 1950s.  The effect of this renovation gone wrong of the original facade has all but rendered this terrace house unrecognisable from what it once was.  The “tinning” comes complete with aluminium sliding windows, security fly screens and besser wall.
