High Street is shown on the 1884 subdivision of Myrtle Grove as running from Schwebel Street to Myrtle Street. This is now Charlotte Avenue. In 1891 lots on the western side of High Street were auctioned. The Residence of Mr J Meeks is shown on the eastern side of High Street. By 1896 Meeks’ residence is shown as Myrtle Cottage owned by Alexander Sneddon Esq. The road shown as Meeks Road is now Carrington Road. It appears that the eastern side of High Street was developed in the 1920’s
