Location Summer Street.
Statement of Significance
Building silhouettes, particularly in Summer Street, are important in revealing the architectural style at the time of design. The rows of decorative silhouettes align the vista along Summer Street and create a sense of place which suggests something about the era in which the buildings were constructed. The soft pastel colours and ornamental detailing of the buildings are typical of the mid 1800s and not a style used in contemporary architecture which increases their significance. Clear sky behind building tops is required to enhance the silhouette and this has been achieved along Summer Street and contributes to the quality of the scene.
