Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
Sketch diagrams might have to wait till the weekend.
Just an up-date on the last surviving Chamber Street house (no. 4), discussed earlier. The pinching in of the top floor windows is strongly suggestive that this house was originally gabled to the street (triangular rather than curvilinear) like the rest of Chamber Street, as photopgraphed repeatedly before incremental demolition throughout the first half of the 20th century accounted for every other original house on the street.
Photograph taken last year, Almost certainly this house was originally built circa 1700.
Photograph taken last week.
Gone is the whole ground floor including this tiny cute vernacular shopfront.
