    Correspondence between E.A., Phair and Public Works Committee, City of Melbourne, re Gregory Lane, 27 March 1877, courtesy of Public Record Office Victoria, Victorian Archives Centre.

Gregory Lane

Gregory Lane was located between Queen and Elizabeth streets, extending to the north from Flinders Lane. Named pre-1856 for business owner Stephen Gregory, the lane has since been discontinued. In 1895, J.F. & H. Roberts Ltd was one of the few businesses located on Gregory Lane. The rest of the lane remained largely vacant. Most of the south-east side of the lane was occupied by the back of Collins Street's Commercial Bank. The closed northern end of the lane abutted the back of Collins Street's Phair's Hotel.
