Adelaide architecture of yesteryear

I love the late 19th / early 20th century architecture in Adelaide. To my eyes the houses have beauty and graciousness seldom found in contemporary buildings. Many wonderful examples of this style are found in the leafy inner city suburbs.

The iron lacework found on many of these old buildings is just delightful, relics of an age when construction was not only utilitarian but incorporated features to please the eye.

    • Thank you! One of the benefits of visiting Australia in winter is to get these nice shadows from leafless trees. At least in the parts of the city where they planted European trees; the natives are green all year around.
