House in Clayton around 1935. It was recorded as being the fifth house built in Clayton, likely referring to the fifth house in a housing development rather than in the entire suburb, which by 1935 already had a long history and many older houses. Clayton had been a productive rural area with market gardens from the 1850s, and township had developed after the arrival of the railway and a station on Clayton Road in 1877. By 1933 the census recorded that Clayton had 103 residents.
