14 Annand Street, Fitzroy North

Was classified as “Good brick” on 28 July 1970 ($11,300); It was not subject to order, and was extensively damaged by vandals before demolition 10 July 1971. Taken within the block Church Street-Rae Street- Nicholson Street. Targeted by Housing Commission, Victoria for broad scale demolition and construction of high rise apartment blocks. This was opposed by residents, both tenants and owners and factories. This campaign was a turning point in public housing policy and practice in Victoria. (Text from Yarra Libraries)
