Description:
A photograph from an album, probably put together by Stanton & Son, illustrating the firm's housing projects from ca.1912-1922. "Although this house, [constructed in 1908], would have been designed by the Haberfield architect, John Spencer-Stansfield, it reflects the Domestic Gothic style of the early Federation period with the cone at the end of the verandah. Note the vertical emphasis in this style of architecture, with the tall chimneys and finials on the roof, the coloured panes of glass in fanlights and windows, and the tall fence posts with veritcal pickets." [ref. Tours of Haberfield : past and present : part three by Vincent Crow (p. 211)] A different view of the house appears in Haberfield : the garden suburb, a trade catalogue put out by Stanton & Sons ca. 1913, p. 19.
