An Edwardian door on Paterson street…

An Edwardian door on Paterson street

Its always an interesting thing to look at when one era borrows from another. In this case the shape of the door is Elizabethan generally and was used in the odd English fortified home before that. And yet here we have a door in a building that likely just preceded or was built at the time of the most recognisable modern twentieth century style that being Art Deco.

‘Rosetta’ a home on the edge of West Launceston or is it Prospect?

Rosetta is a lovely Art Deco home on the edge of West Launceston or is it Prospect

Rosetta is beautiful Art Deco home on the edge of West Launceston or is it Prospect? Its quite difficult to photograph any other angle than the front of this home but it has all of the feature that typify the Art Deco Style, flying balconies on two sides, curved walls and steel framed windows all in good condition for its age. However there is one little feature that is downright quirky, a mimicked single corinthian column on the right hand side of  the very ampley wide door.
Is this a little visual joke, a builders error or a client, architect compromise. What ever it is, its an oddment and an interesting find. Again it would be pleasure to have a look around and photograph this building…
