ARCHITECTURE

Federation / Simple Domestic Carpenter

No. 45 (previously was no. 111) Duke Street is a single-storey cottage of timber framing and jarrah weatherboard cladding with a gabled corrugated iron roof. A two-storey later addition is evident to the rear.

The place is consistent with the pattern of development in Plympton and plays an important role in the pattern of development of a working class suburb.
