Architecture

Federation Bungalow

No. 74 (previously was no. 160) Duke Street is a single-storey cottage of timber framing and weatherboard cladding with a hipped and gabled corrugated iron roof. There are later additions to the rear. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style.

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.

History

1928 In sad but loving memory of Lyle Stanley, the dear son of Maurice and Mary Caldwell, fond brother of Maurice, George, Jack (deceased), Alex, Arnold, Maisie and Olive, who died result of injuries received on Stirling and High-streets, Fremantle, January 29, 1928. Aged 15½ years.

“Every night as the sun goes west,

We long for the boy we loved so well;

Called away from those who loved him,

Plucked like a flower in bloom.

So young, so bright, so happy;

Yet called away too soon.

Some may think you are forgotten, Lyle,

When they see us smile;

But one can never know the broken heart

That is hidden all the while”.

Inserted by his sorrowing parents, M. and M. Caldwell, East Perth. (reference)
