A forester’s cottage, Ferntree Gully, Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia, ca. 1900, a glass lantern slide by Archibald James Campbell, via Museums Victoria Collections.
I like the two log pillars at the bottom of the steps, each topped by a potted plant.
During the 19th century, the forests of the Dandenong mountains were a major source of timber for Melbourne.
One thought on “Ferntree Gully”
Great potted plants, I agree. I’d never have guessed that the forester’s cottage was in Australia. The detailing around the windows on the house is quite striking, as is the patterning of the wood.
