Road off eastern side of Streatham Road. South of Melrose Avenue and north of Elmhurst Avenue.
The road was marked out on this 1913 map, but no houses had been built yet. Planning application number 6310 in June 1913 by F.R. GOODALL was for 8 houses, and application number 6318 by A.C. BALLARD was also for 8 houses.
The 1915 street directory lists houses on side as numbered even from 2 to 80, and on the other side, odd numbers from 1 to 65.
