Evolving Port

Port Melbourne continues to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new houses take their place. New forms of housing are created. Port Houses records some of these changes.

33 Esplanade East, Port Melbourne


29 January 2012

Another place that once sold is likely to change significantly. Can anyone provide more context to help understand this building? It is so small - that's why I took the side view. The verandah detailing is very simple. The roof has no pitch.

202 Clark St, Port Melbourne



202 Clark St is for sale. Before its tidied up - here it is. Does anyone know who lived there? I always feel sad when I see these family homes once so loved and tended - now dishevelled - before they take on a new life. 
Clark St is notable for its plane trees - a pleasure for some, and a trial to others.
Clark St was the edge of Port Melbourne's settlement west of the railway line till 1870.
