St. Vincent Street:

St. Vincent Street:

Nelson's famous sea battle. It should be remembered that Sir John Jervis, was the Admiral in charge of the fleet at this battle and that he became Earl St. Vincent after the battle. Once it had a school at its lower end where Kirbys is today, the Toi-toi Valley School for Girls. This school had a peculiar habit of migrating, first to a position a little above the Globe Hotel and then on the other side of it at Haven Road corner as the Haven Road School, built about 1880. Then it continued its march seawards to Auckland Point School and I fancy it will not go beyond this. Rather, the population has increased at the top of the Valley where Victory School has been built.
