History[edit]

known as Sylliott Hill, which was begun in 1862-3 for lawyer, Richard A. Billing. Caulfield North was once home to many large Victorian mansions, most of which were demolished and subdivided, however a few remain, the most notable of which is Labassa, which is owned by the National Trust. The mansion was one of the filming locations for the 2002 film Queen of the Damned.

Many streets in the suburb were named in the late 1850s after Crimea War locations and people, for example, Cardigan, Canrobert, Inkerman, Alma, Raglan, and Balaclava.

The Caulfield North Post Office was opened on 26 March 1915.[7]

It was Shanghai's "closest approach to a modern American skyscraper."[8] It commands possibly the best view of the Bund and Huangpu.

Inclusion in article[edit]

  • It is better to insert the samples next to a paragraph mentioning them to justify their fair use, instead of grouping them at the end of the article.
  • There is no limit to the number of samples that can be used in one article (although, critically, non-free samples are subject to requirements for minimal use), but keep in mind that music samples serve as tools for a better understanding of the article, so insert only relevant samples.
  • Inserted samples should use the template {{listen}} to properly format the sample. Using the |pos=left or |pos=right (default) parameter allows the sample to 'float' left or right next to the relevant paragraph.
  • For an example of template code, see "All Along the Watchtower" to see the final rendering:

{{Listen
|filename=Bob_Dylan_-_All_Along_The_Watchtower.ogg
|title=Bob Dylan "All Along the Watchtower" (1967)
|description=16 second sample from Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower".

Second Empire[edit]

Second Empire was preferred for grander mansions. For the rich, particularly in the wealthier parts of the larger metropolitan areas, the style evoked images of French aristocracy. Although rare, examples can be found in the bigger cities. Distinctive features include towers, quoining, mansard and slate roofs, square domes dormer windows, iron cresting and rich classical details. In the Australian setting, domestic interpretations of the style often combined filigree elements such as cast iron verandahs.
