Malcolm Street was named for Sir Malcolm Fraser, the Commissioner of Lands and First Agent General for Western Australia in London (1892).
Duplex 14-16 Malcolm Street. It is difficult to ascertain when the residence was built from the council rate records. However, both number fourteen and number eighteen appear on the Public Works Department Maps dated 1898. Thus they must have been built between 1892 and 1898. Both houses were built for and by Thomas Whitely, a building contractor.
