24-26 Brookes Crescent, Fitzroy North

Looking East: Brookes Crescent Reserve showing local children and a playground. In the immediate background Nos. 21, 23, 25 (demolished) and No. 27 (later to be demolished). The owner of No. 21 had undertaken extensive internal renovations and redecorations. No. 25 was bought by the Housing Commission on 23 September 1969 for $7,600 and demolished on 10 April 1970. It had not been subject to a demolition or repair order.
