Glen Huntly Rd – street numbers
We’ve devised a list which shows the street numbering changes in Glen Huntly Rd from the 1930s to 1960s. A very useful resource when checking old addresses.
We have two students from Monash University working with us, as part of their third year history studies. They are busy transcribing oral histories, identifying house photographs, researching and gaining insight into possible career paths for history graduates.
GEHS turns 50 in 2022!

Founded in 1972 the Caulfield Historical Society’s early work led to significant buildings such as Myoora, Halstead and Lirrewa gaining heritage protection at a time when many historic buildings were under threat of demolition.
In 1994, the City of Caulfield merged with the northern part of the City of Moorabbin and became the new City of Glen Eira. Some years later the Caulfield Historical Society changed its name to the Glen Eira Historical Society, to reflect the whole municipality of Glen Eira. View Map
