Victory Square:

Victory Square:

Nelson's flagship at the Battle of the Nile. In the sketch map drawn by Hobhouse in 1859 he does not show any streets in Toi-toi Valley—Vanguard or St. Vincent Streets or even Victory Square. He notes that Vanguard Street was not yet formed, but I wonder! The same map didn't show Milton Street at all at this time so perhaps it is well not to overemphasise its value.
