Architectural Model - D.C. Gallager House, Glenhuntly, 1932 Object Reg. No: SH 891675

Model of D.C. Gallager House, Glenhuntly, Victoria. This house was designed by A.V. Jennings' first architect Edgar Gurney and built by E. F. Barnard in 1932. It is located on the corner of Dorothy and MacGowan Avenues, Glenhuntly and cost 895 pounds sterling. The house, originally a compact bungalow style home with five rooms, including two bedrooms, lounge, dining and kitchen, was cement rendered in 1950 and had a second storey extension in 1979. The Gallager house bears many similarities to contemporary A.V. Jenning's homes which populated the suburb of Glenhuntly in the early 1930s.

This model was made by Modeltech in 1989 for Museum Victoria's exhibition 'Home Sweet Home: changes in Victorian Domestic Architecture, 1839 - 1989'.
