Town Acre 982 was subdivided in the early 1880s and Botten + Bowser will be sited on Allotments 92 & 94 - better known as 69 & 71 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide.
Phineas Botten, as stockbroker, blacksmith, constable and councillor in Prospect purchased allotment 94 in 1888.
In 1882, Mary Bowser (nee Botten), a married woman and Phineas’ sister, purchased allotment 92 for her separate use.
The same year, on the other side of the world, the UK passed the Women’s Property Act of 1882, which allowed married women to have an identity separate to their husband’s, enabling them to purchase property.
