List of lanes and arcades in Perth, Western Australia
The first plan of Perth, developed in 1829 by the Surveyor-General, John Septimus Roe, was a semi-regular grid pattern bounded by Mount Eliza to the west, wetlands to the north, with three principal streets running parallel to the Swan River and three streets running north–south. The original allotments ran through from street to street in a north–south direction so that properties generally had two frontages.
Following the completion of the central Perth railway station in 1881, the area bounded by William and Barrack Streets was consolidated as the commercial and retail centre of Perth. Banks, insurance buildings, professional and commercial offices were constructed along St Georges Terrace, with businesses, shops and warehouses developing in Wellington, Murray and Hay Streets. A number of hotels and theatres were also built in this central area and large department stores, such as Foy & Gibson and Sandover established along the tram route and the shopping strip along Hay Street. Shopping arcades and passageways were also developed in this period, allowing people to move with ease through the increasingly busy Perth streets and providing spaces for additional commercial premises outlets within the narrow blocks.
