History

Chalmers Street was originally named Edmund Street North and changed names in 1948. The street is thought to be named after J. Chalmers who was a Fremantle City Councilor from 1930 - 1933 and again in 1935 - 1942.

The Rates Books of 1918/1919 show that Subdivision 1 of 1009 (11 Chalmers Street) is a vacant lot
with Stuart Holm (the owner of several nearby Lots at the time) is crossed out and Charles Hugh McIntosh is listed as the owner dated 6/9/19.

Originally the property was known as 480 High Street changing during the 1941/1942 period to 240 High Street, later to become known as 11 Chalmers Street.

During the 1919/20 Rates books a ‘new cottage’ is listed and valued on the 1 May 1920. Charles H McIntosh married Alice may Prosser in 1904.Charles died in 1964 aged 81 and Alice died in 1968 aged 86.

The McIntosh family resided at 11 Chalmers until at least 1949 when the last year of the West Australian Post Office Directories was published.
