Photographed from 86 Savage Crescent, home of Mrs Beryl Walker from 1939-1994, shows houses 80 Savage Crescent (far left), 85 Savage Crescent (centre) and 87 Savage Cresent (right). Savage Crescent, a state housing area, which was designed on the principles of the garden suburb. The low nib walls marking the street frontages combined with trees planted on the verges were intended to create the appearance of a large community garden. After seventy years parts of the inner streets retain this aspect. this photograph is part of the series but is a good illustration of the garden suburb of the time.
