Historical notes: These lots were all bought as vacant land in 1903-4 by Albert and Sydney Carson (sons of Thomas Carson), Stephen Chandler and his wife Florence and by Rebecca Hill, wife of Roland Hill of Chatswood. In the next few years all of these dwellings were erected for these owners, for owner-occupation and for rental. By 1914, the street was complete. Many of these owners lived in the street or nearby. Even the Hills moved to Granville from Chatswood. The erection of these dwellings was a direct response to the improved conditions in Sydney in the early 1900's. National Trust (Parramatta Branch): Formerly used as adolescent boy's home.
