History

Solomon Street was originally known as Mary Street, gazetted in 1905. It changed its name in 1951/52 to honour Elias Solomon, a Fremantle merchant and politician who built a house and lived in this street. Solomon was a Town Councillor 1878-1880, 1883-1886, Mayor in 1889-1891, 1896-98 and 1900-01. He was a state parliamentarian, MLA for the seat of South Fremantle 1892-1901, then transferred to Federal Politics with a seat in the House of Representatives from 1901-1903. Solomon was the first Member for Fremantle in the Federal Government.

House 31 Solomon Street used to be 87 Mary St. The lot is vacant on sewerage diagram no.61 June 1908. By 1915-16 there was a cottage owned and occupied by Vernon Waters Ward. The house is on subdivision 49 of Town Lot 739 to 757.
