Edwin St, Mortlake, NSW

The last onsite painting in my series on the ANZOL paint factory.  I drove by and saw the fence posts going up to block off the abandoned houses in Edwin St beside it. The whole lot is being demolished to allow for the building of 400 units.
Especially sad to see the weatherboard house on the right going under the bulldozer... the guy who lives across the road from it told me it’s the oldest house in the area. I love the peeling paint and the carving on the front under the roof. It would have been lovely in its day! By the next morning it was all boarded up, so lucky I had the time to draw it then!
