The online exhibition features photographs taken for a review of the North Shore Heritage Inventory for North Shore City Council in 1994.

The project involved a review of items on the registers and schedules of the five pre-amalgamation district schemes.

The photographs were taken as part of a foot survey for the whole of Devonport to identify additions to the inventory.

The architectural styles include:

  • cottages and early villas before 1890

  • Victorian-Edwardian villas, 1890 to 1910

  • Edwardian and transitional villas, 1905 to 1920

  • bungalows

  • English Cottage Style, 1920s to 1930s.

So far we have been unable to identify all the houses in the photographs. Can you help?
