Town Lot 410

High Street, north side, between Pakenham to Market Street

The earliest owner of Lot 410 recorded by Hitchcock (1929) was Louisa Bond.

At the end of 2022, by my own estimation, using Google Maps and streetview, Lot 410 is the site of Pearse's Building (1899), 72-78 High Street, shops occupied by Bodkin's Bootery, Unique Hair & Beauty.

Hitchcock 1919, describing the situation as he recalled it in 1869:
From the next corner of Packenham-street, right up to the Market-street every block was built upon, some of the structures being of a very primitive type. On the Packenham-street corner [lot 409] was a retail store kept by Herbert Dixon, then a couple of small provision stores kept by W. Kett and T. Monaghan, then a wooden structure used as a greengrocer’s shop by G. Curedale.
