Victoria Lane

Located between King and William streets, Victoria Lane extended from Bourke Street to Little Collins Street. Occupying this lane in 1920 was the Nestle & Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. In the late nineteenth century, Victoria Lane was a mostly residential street. Daniel Gordon of number 2, Hewitt Henderson of number 3 and Patrick Carmody of number 4 Victoria Lane all received summonses from the Inspector of Nuisances John Fullerton in 1892 for 'allowing the contents of the portable cesspools on their premises to overflow on the 26th February'.
