Before street numbers were introduced, many Mt Albert houses had names.

Some street names have changed – where appropriate, current names and numbers are in brackets after the name in the source. See the Mt Alberts Streets A-Z page for more details about name changes.

“When houses have names, they acquire an anthropomorphic presence, somehow causing the four walls to become more than the sum of parts”.
