Summer Street 1919

The main street of Orange. According to Ross Maroney ‘the choice of name for Orange's main street is a puzzle. It forms an interesting quartet with Autumn Street, Spring Street and Winter Street, but these three were added at the time of later subdivisions, obviously to match the already existent 'Summer St'. One possibility is that the early surveyors were thinking of 'Summer Hill Street', which may seem slightly ludicrous now, but, at the time, Summer Hill was a settlement rivalling Blackman's Swamp'.
