Rundle Street was one of the streets included in Colonel William Light’s Plan of the City of Adelaide. It runs east-west, connecting King William Street and East Terrace, and is divided midway by Pulteney Street. The streets and squares in Light’s Plan were named on 23 May 1837 by a Street Naming Committee made up of Governor John Hindmarsh, Colonel Light and ten other prominent settlers. Rundle Street was named after John Rundle, a director and financier of the South Australian Co. Rundle was a successful businessman and a Whig politician in the British House of Commons.
