93 Canning Highway

ARCHITECTURE

No. 93 Canning Highway is a single-storey house constructed in brick with a hipped ‘M’ format, corrugated-iron roof. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a centrally located front door flanked by bay windows. The facade features a full width, bull-nosed roofed verandah on turned timber posts, with curved frieze boards over a timber floor. Steps lead down to the garden. 
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

Research on the history of this property is currently under way by the Museum of Perth in partnership with the Town of East Fremantle.
