The home in Lalor was at 18 Vasey Avenue and was completed in October 1950. It was a triple fronted brick veneer home with two bedrooms and one bathroom. The rooms were of an ample size and the most unusual feature of the house was that the laundry faced the front street. This is not clear in this image of the house taken in 1950. There was town water connected, however the electricity was not connected until 1952. I do remember the ice man coming to fill the ice chest in the early days. There was an automated telephone connected, however the only phone box was at the Railway Station and was a 600 yard, or 560 mt. walk uphill along an unmade road. The road and drainage system was not installed until 1960, at which time my parents had moved to Wollert. The ‘night cart’ was eventually replaced with a sewerage system in 1973, 26 years after the project commenced.
Below is a current image of the house taken in 2018.
The house was last sold in December 2018 and from the images posted with the listing, the floor plan has not changed since it was built 68 years ago. The only exception to the layout is that the double doors from the dining room to the living room have been removed. The kitchen has been renovated and the open fire in the living room has been replaced with a gas heater.
