There was a mix of businesses and homes on the street side. The courts were any part beyond the main front building. Sometimes the houses were a single block built together but often they were a mix of different developments, sometimes detached. The plots were originally gardens for the front property but as the need for property grew they started building along the garden. They were initially called yards and were often named after the business or owner at the front. Some point in the late 1800s they became courts with a number.

Dean Nelson just posted this one on FB and thanks to Heathite's directories I've been able to locate as 62 Gosford St on the left - Maison Dawes Hairdressers and No.63 to the right - Jesse Franklin Ladieswear. 63 later became the Alex Cafe - opposite where National Tyres are today.
