English place names, East Melbourne

Repost 2019:

10,12 and 14 #PowlettStreet, #EastMelbourne, 1886, all matching and perfectly intact. And all named after English places, where of course most Melburnians came from in the 19thC. Exeter, which is in Devon, and Edgcombe, which isn’t a place in the Uk hmm. Update: Edgecombe is a name for some cottages in a town near Exeter.
