Cohealth and the Brotherhood of St Laurence snuggle up opposite the housing commission flats. I love the green building next to cohealth and the bright red flowers flowing from the window box nearby. These must have been built after 1910, because the previous buildings exploded! The pair of buildings on the corner are still there, although they have lost their verandahs and most of their decoration.

Browse the gallery below to find out more, and please leave a comment. I would love to hear your stories!
