Tattersalls Lane

Located between Swanston and Russell streets, Tattersalls Lane extends from Lonsdale Street to Little Bourke Street. It was named pre-1856 after the Tattersalls Hotel and Tattersalls Club located nearby, and in 1860 was populated by a number of Chinese migrants attracted to Victoria by the discovery of gold in the colony. In 1893, the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Company, manufacturers of bicycle tyres, was established in Tattersalls Lane.
