Built in the 1840's originally as fishermen's cottages and lodging houses overlooking sandhills and one of the oldest shopping streets in Southport after the main boulevard of Lord Street.

These properties gradually converted into shops with living accommodation above and some of the shops still retain the old cast iron kitchen ranges complete with ovens. The first shops were mentioned in the first census of 1871 but were originally thought to have been converted around 1864. There was a hardware store and toy shop and the shops had inter-connecting doors and became a covered shopping emporium where customers could walk from shop to shop without getting rained upon.
