The first demolition of these old houses, probably about 130 years old, 16 January 1966. In the following year the process was accelerated and many others were removed along with the Lavender Street houses. Incidentally this street took its name from the double hedges of lavender which flanked open gardens in the 1820s. A centenarian still living in 1922 said that when she was a child it was a “real lavender street”.
