ARCHITECTURE

Inter-War Domestic Carpenter / Austerity

No. 69 (previously was no. 153) Duke Street is a single-storey cottage of timber framing, corrugated sheeting and weatherboard cladding. The place has a gambrel decramastic roof and later additions to the rear. It is a simple expression of the Federation Inter-War style with later modifications that have changed its appearance.

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.
