Contents Melbourne baroque : an interior monologue / Patrick Pound
Summary ‘Suburban Baroque’ brings together a selection of David Wadelton’s photographs of the vanishing mid-century suburban interiors of the formerly working-class northern areas that were the destination of choice for many post-war immigrants from Europe. The once-ubiquitous terrazzo, balustrades, marble columns and lions and other manifestations of pride and nostalgia for their homelands have become increasingly rare as the years pass, generations change, and gentrification takes place. The rooms are redolent of a different era and imbued with pathos, as most were the pride and joy of a generation that is passing. —, viewed 15 August 2019
