John Harbison was MLA for North Melbourne. As well as the grantee for several areas he owned Rich Hill Terrace in Dudley Street. His son, William, was a prominent doctor in South Australia.

Street numbers 69 and 71 were once separate but are now known as one address. The building that faces the street is thought to have been a very early shop, possibly a pastry or confectionery shop with a residence behind up until the 1950’s before the windows of the shop front were filled in and the sapce converted into a residence.
