Chapel Street 

Main Period: Interwar

Leadlight apparent at No 17

Chapel Street is one of the streets in Marrickvill that has undergone initial subdivision as subsequent development and transformation into an industrial area.  An orchard is shown on the 1875 Plan of Villa Sites along with a Public School that no longer exists.  The Public School along with Thompson's Hotel (Now the Henson) is shown on the 1883 Beer's Estate. Much of the land between Victoria Street and Fitzroy Street was flood prone leading to the area changing from residential land to industrial.
