Old Mill Road Special

by 3DWarehouse
In the early 20th century local councils became more interventionist. One area they moved into was housing provision. In the early 1920s Auckland City Council, using a government loan, built 60 houses in suburban Grey Lynn for working families to buy. Among them were these houses erected in Old Mill Road. They were constructed of (low-maintenance) concrete and featured a series of different bungalow-styled designs. In 2011 many of the houses remained standing, though some had been modified.
