Colonel Light laid out North Adelaide in 1837 as an urban satellite with 341 acre blocks surrounded by Park Lands. It soon became a dormitory suburb for the social elite wealthy business and professional men who built large mansions, mostly in Upper North Adelaide. Lower North Adelaide centred on Melbourne Street, sometimes called Irishtown, by contrast, tended to be inhabited by labouring classes, artisans, and tradesmen who lived in cottages on small allotments.
