Photographer's Note

Darlington is a small, inner-city suburb of Sydney. It is located about 3 kms south of the Sydney central business district. Historically Darlington was a suburb of the industrial working class. It has often been used as a student dormitory suburb due to its proximity to the University of Sydney's Camperdown campus and housing is relatively cheap. (Wikipedia.org)

I walked into Darlington looking for some buildings of the University of Sydney. Instead I walked into these small houses in Victorian buildingstyle. The Victorian era dates from about 1840 to 1900. One can recognize the Australian Victorian style amongst others by the type of fences on the balcony as well as the ornaments in the same style near the roof as can be seen in this photo but there are others as well. There are a variety of Victorian styles though, each with its own distinctive features.

A photo of the facade of the last two houses can be found here.
