There is a delightful exhibition currently showing at the Grafton Regional Gallery. Lesley Apps and Simon Hughes have compiled a photographic essay on Clarence Valley houses from the 1950's, 60's and 70's. The 67 photos include Housing Commission bungalows to vast brick mansions and everything else in between. There is also a small but interesting display of typical household items from each decade.
Something that does standout is how many houses are built using Want's cream bricks, the commons from the local brick works. It does give the houses from these decades a real sense of being local and creates a regional vernacular.
