Perfectly pukka - the colonial bungalow, with Dr Scott Hill
With its deep, shaded verandahs and high-pitched roof, Elizabeth Farm is often described as a ‘colonial bungalow’ – but what exactly does this mean? In this talk we explore the origins of the bungalow, a name that was Anglo-Indian in origin and which by the mid-19th century was being used to describe houses in colonial settings around the world, including New South Wales – including one that can truly be called an Anglo-Indian bungalow. Its all perfectly pukka!
