The subdivision of Moncur's garden in 1905 created Moncur Street. The lots were promoted as being on the highlands of Marrickville' which is probably reassuring as parts of Marrickville had a reputation for flooding. The lots were very small and many of the houses on the southern side are semidetached. This was clearly a street for workers of modest means.
