  • Hello
    Could you send me the address of Samuel Lee Place, it was originally at the end of Wellbank St Concord but it may now be relocate.
    Samuel is my grandfather who lived in No 1 Wellbank St, I remember travelling with him in his T model Ford utility with his name in gold lettering along each side, he had a Florist shop near the Burward Rail station and a large nursery on the land adjacent to No 1 Wellank St
    Kind regards and thanks

    • Samuel Lee Place was named in 1947 at the suggestion of Samuel’s son, W. Lee, who wrote to Council on behalf of the Lee family. It was at that time described as a “garden plot at the foot of Wellbank Street”. This would have been where the nursery was but that area has now become Edwards Park.
