What is post-war heritage?

Post-war residential buildings emerged in Moonee Valley after World War II the growth in household sizes, home ownership and an architectural style influenced by immigration and manufacturing. Post-war residential buildings are typically brick veneer featuring mass produced decorative flourishes.

Most identified post-war places in Moonee Valley are houses from the early post-war era (1945-55) which show the influence of Art Deco/Moderne and Old English, as well as more cutting-edge houses designed by architects.

What is the focus of this Heritage Study?
