Strolling Along Jeffcott Street.....

This home is one of three detached houses built in  1882
and joined together to form what was know as "Milford House"
one of South Australia's largest Private Hotels
in later years they were used as a private hospital and eventually
 sold separately and restored  to their
former elegance as private homes

A pretty buttery yellow banksia rose now trails along the front fence

What a beautiful world that is.

Those lovely houses have seen their share of transformation. I suspect if they'd been in some Canadian cities I could name (but won't) they'd have been torn down.
Beautiful photos, Dianne!

Adelaide is one of my favourite places to visit. The sense of the desert being so close really haunts the place. These photos really bring out its beauty.

Lovely house/apartments! Sadly, they probably wouldn't have survived in the US either! Delightful captures, Dianne! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

What a grand capture of yesteryear; the balcony with its ornate wrought-iron work drew my eye, as did the fascinating front fence beneath the rambling roses!

You shared a story about renewal and survival today. The house is lovely, as is the wall, and I enjoyed the sneak peak into the yard. The white wicker chair is for me!

Those tin roof, so typical of an aussie house.

Lovely old homes, the sort of place I would love to live in one day!
Very envious about your wildlife photo workshop with Steve Parish. The duck photo is great, I can never seem to get these type of shots right. Look forward to seeing more of them.

I've never heard of a s "Milford House" before and find the history very interesting! I like the idea that some have been restored.
