If you see pictures of 19th century Adelaide you could be forgiven for assuming it was a city from Southern or Central Europe. In fact for many years a painting of one of Adelaide's main streets hung in an English gallery and the label read, 'somewwhere in Italy', until an Adelaidian visited the gallery and pointed out that it was Adelaide. Of course in the twentieth century many other styles, in particular those from North America have creeped into the streetscape.
interesting, after reading this I have noticed this Italianate style of buildings more and more.
