Once upon a time, this type of house was the province of the working class and then they slowly became time worn and some were pulled down. Terrace housing was on the wane. As the years passed and Australians began to realise their heritage was being lost, a movement gathered momentum and suddenly buildings such as this became worthwhile.
They were done up, restored even, and sold at inflated prices but, hey, don't they make such a change from the profusion of 20th century bland housing that one finds elsewhere.
These examples are to be found in the inner city, about a block south west of Civic Park and the cultural centre.
Address: Council Street, Newcastle
