Some lots in George Street, near Wardell Road, were auctioned as ‘Favells Garden’ in 1883. George Street is shown on the 1884 Hawkhurst Estate where lots at the eastern end of the street leading to Livingston Road (then shown as Cook’s River Old Road) were auctioned.
There were probably a number of large mansions in George Street in the 1880’s when it was originally subdivided. Most of those have been redeveloped into units and flats. Some have literally had a new facade placed on the front of the building.
