LAST WEEK’S ANSWER

The decorative brickwork in last week’s clue is on 1 Fairfield Street, built in 1871. This is an example of the “Brick Panel” architectural style that became popular in this area in the 1870s. The distinctive architec­tural details of this residence are created by placement of bricks into window and door frames, string courses, and decorative panels.
