A photograph from an album
, probably put together by Stanton & Son, illustrating the firm's housing projects from ca.1901 -1922.
This house was the first to be constructed in Dickson Street (ca1904), as part of the Haberfield Estate and displays many of the elements of Federation architecture, including the tall decorated chimneys, stained glass windows, finials, timber fence and asymmetrical appearance, with a noted Domestic Gothic influence in its turret. The verandah timberwork repeats the arch-form in the fanlight of the bay window. This is probably the house advertised by Stanton in The Advertiser on 3rd September 1904 ... 'a unique feature of this up-to-date cottage is the splendid octagonal hall ... lighted by leadlight windows under the turret which surmounts the roof and gives the cottage a grand appearance'.
