Heading along Parnell Road, at the top of Parnell Rise are the Mayfair Flats, completed in 1929. They were designed by K W R Rowlings, and built by Fletcher Construction Co. Ltd (who owned them until 1939). As this was towards the end of the period in which Fletchers owned the Avondale brickyard at St George's Road (re-named by them Glenburn Fireclay & Pottery Co) -- that's where the bricks and original roof tiles were sourced from.
So -- a quite substantiual part of present-day Parnell stems from ol' Avondale, out west. Probably more does, too, but so far, this one has been identified, thanks to the new history of Fletcher Construction, No Job Too Big (2009, Vol. 1). This was the reason for my Parnell stroll yesterday, in case anyone who knows me from out that way was wondering.
