Lily Street

1907 — In August, J.J. Miller and 9 other residents petitioned the Board of Works “to clear a right of way on an un-named street lying between blocks one & two in Block 136 Grandview and between William and Napier Street being about 260’ long. Several new houses are going up there and the residents are unable to obtain access to their homes unless the Council renders them sound assistance in the manner asked for.” i

1910 May – Lily Street was cleared and graded, and a sewer laid. ii

Lily Street was probably given its name soon after as it appears in Goad’s 1912 Map and in the City Directory of 1913.
