My grandparents house in North Road South Oakleigh is of a similar vintage and was built with cream bricks. My grandparent's house also had a port hole window near the front door. I think there was a sand blasted bird on the glass and it was too high to see out of, so purely decorative and for light.
Where I buy coffee at times at Kettle Black.
The Yarra Trams officer found a nice shady grassed spot to park while there was nothing requiring his attendance, and his work car was bogged and had to be winched out. I can imagine the radio chatter about that.
