Edwin ‘Ted’ Street, brother of Charles Edward Street was born in Wollongong on August 8, 1891. He was the tenth and the last child of the family; he grew up in Corrimal helping his family on their small farm where they grew fruit, vegetables and flowers.
When Charles was home visiting, he and Edwin enlisted together at the Corrimal enlistment office. The date was June 22, 1916 and he was twenty-four years old at the time. He and his brother sailed from Sydney on October 7, 1916 as part of the 45th Battalion which consisted of around 600 to 700 men. They disembarked at Plymouth, England on November 21, 1919.
For the next few months, he trained at ‘Codford Training Camp.’ Edwin, along with most of the battalion left for France in January 1917; he and his brother were not always assigned together.

In June 1921 he married Daisy Olive Grigg. Like many soldiers, he was unsettled on his return so he and Daisy moved to Yanco/Leeton where he would become a farmer. Some of his older brothers lived there.
Farming was not for him so he moved back to Corrimal with Daisy. His older brother, Daniel, started experimenting with a product in small ways years before. Ted decided to take up that project and subsequently laid the foundation of Streets ice cream. Edwin worked on the ice cream in his back shed and would sell it to neighbours along with sweets, cakes and lemonade. He and his wife worked together making and promoting the product which was marketed as ‘The Cream of the Coast.’ Streets is a renowned brand in Australia and Australia’s leading manufacturer of ice cream. 
Edwin and his wife had no children but regularly donated to charities and community facilities. His contributions resulted in building of five swimming pools on the South Coast: Corrimal, Batemans Bay, Dapto, Moruya and Narooma.

He died on August 11th 1975 at the age of eighty-three.
