Alton Bay Estate 22nd September 1888 – Altona


As the poster says this is the third sale in this subdivision. Earlier sales were on the 8th and 15th of September. Hover you cursor over the map for an enlarged view.




A company was formed early in 1888 to subdivide and sell 2715 acres of land. Very large ads appeared in the local newspapers in March and April 1888 setting out the prospectus. Advertisements for the auction first appeared in August and the first sale was on the 8th of September. The second was a week later on the 15th and the third one week after that on the 22nd. I could find only one report on the sales and that was in the Argus of the 8th of October saying:-

Messrs W. H. Peryman and Co report having held a sale of the Altona Bay Estate to day. Over 70 allotments being sold ranging from 10s. to £2 7s 6d per foot. Total amount of sale £5,5680-10s-6d”

This section of the subdivision is bounded by the Espalnade in the south, Upton Street in the west, Nellie (now Civic Parade) in the north and McBain Street in the east. Queen, Blyth, Romawi and David Streets cut through the development.
