Edwardian residence

Style of building that was popular from 1901 to 1916. The style is characterised by buildings that are solid, small, and made of common red bricks. The floors have strong horizontal lines, and the cornice and parapets are plastered and painted in flat planes. Verandahs were taken down and walls were moved up to make parapets, which showed how bare the building was. No kind of cast iron was used.
