1870 (C)  [Plan Marrickville area] - showing Charles St (now Bright Street),

1891 Portion of Mrs Jones' subdivision,

Mrs Jones' Subdivision of 1891 shows Brights Street as Jones Street.

A plan from the State Library of NSW shows that the land was subdivided as early as 1870 (c.) when the street was shown as Charles Street. Before 1900 Bright Street was shown as Jones Street on the sale of Mrs Jones Subdivision in 1891. This was a period of a great depression but many of the lots are shown as sold. Many of the houses built in the 1890’s still exist in good condition.

There are some beautiful late Victorian houses in Bright Street.
