History of a Street Precinct

In 2005, PMH&PS undertook a study of the residents of the houses in a Port Melbourne street precinct after the first houses were built, mainly in the 1880s, up to 1960.

The street precinct is that bounded by Evans Street, the east side of Bridge Street, south side of Williamstown Road, Farrell Street both the east and the west sides and including the section of Ross Street between Farrell and Bridge and the part of Derham Street between Farrell and Bridge.

The result was a map and an interactive CD which won the Best Community Research, Registers & Records project at the 2007 Victorian Community History Awards.

The interactive part of the project is now available through the Society’s website.
