History:
On December 21, 1912 the villages of Pottersburg, Ealing, Chelsea Green and Knollwood became part of the City of London adding 5,100 people to the city roster.  Pottersburg and Ealing were the largest villages with a total of 4300. The annexation of these two villages extended the boundaries of the city eastwards beyond Highbury Avenue. These two suburbs were largely residential, although sparsely settled. Between the groupings of mostly frame houses were many empty lots, filled with daisies, high grass and bushes. The annexation of these areas took the population of London to over 50,000 which allowed for the Street cars to run on Sundays. Ealing and Pottersburg, through annexation, received the advantages of police and fire protection, city sewerage, street lighting, hydro power and eventually paved streets, sidewalks, curbs and gutters.  Spurred by the post WW1 population boom the newly serviced streets gave stimulus to a rapid residential development.

At the foot of St. Julian Street is the Thames River which had been used as one of the popular swimming holes in the city located in St. Julien playground.  This park was purchased by the city in 1927  from C. E. Finch. It was equipped with a natural swimming pool (in the river) in which a sand bag dam was built to deepen the water.
