Queen-street of 1835 bore little resemblance to the street of to-day. Starting from Petrie Bight, and following the well-beaten track, a fairly wide stream was reached. This stream flowed through what is now called Creek-street and wound its way into Adelaide-street. It was crossed by means of a punt at the corner of Queen-street and Creek-street. A few years later a bridge was erected at the same spot. The track on the other side of the creek led past a steep hill on which was built a penal factory for women convicts.
