Power St in Southbank was supposedly named after a man called William Power.

William was a councillor in Melbourne, between the years of 1869 and 1872.

It is believed that during his time as a councillor, William Power may also have been the licensee of the Clarendon Hotel, which was on the corner of Clarendon and Ross streets.

This was as much information as we could find while researching the meaning behind naming Power St.
