Corner of Toxteth and Maxwell Roads

A highly ornamented corner house, and a rare example of the use of shingles.

Corner of Toxteth and Maxwell Roads

At 43 Toxteth Road, at the corner of Maxwell Road, is a Federation house that also addresses both streets, likeĀ Montana, but is easier to see. In this case a gable with carved boards and a painted plaster floral ornament faces the corner. There are wall panels with painted tiles of herons fishing, and more typical ones of flowers growing out of pots. Across the road are two rare examples of terraces with their upper floors clad in shingles, creating arched balconies in deep shadow.

Turn right down Maxwell Road and at Arcadia Road turn right again. The air of shady seclusion is owing to the use of Hill’s Weeping Figs as street trees, plus a row of Plane trees planted in the centre in 1970.
