Clark Road

Several houses in Clark Road have terracotta features, such as these neat, late Victorian, early Edwardian, semi-detached pairs, which have two string courses  of terracotta.  There are a good number of ceramic porch tiles in this road too, though not here.

This very large house stands on a corner and its designer seems uncertain as to which road the house is facing on to.

The main windows are round the side facing Clark Road and the door is on this side.

This seems to have left the designer with a rather blank wall, which he tried to fill with a large terracotta panel.

Note too the terracotta finials carefully installed on the new front wall.

The panel is large but somewhat crude in execution. 

The bosses on which the garland hangs are a rather unhappy invention and the central star seems quite unrelated to the rest.
