Industrial Development Outstripped Town Planning at Port Kembla [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 15 July 1950
Industrial Development Outstripped Town Planning at Port kembla (By . To the newcomer at Port Kembla it is abundantly obvious that the tide of industry overtook and outstripped town planning. On one hand are houses,, the architecture of which mi??ht form a Sydney Ure Smith etching object, streets so narrow two vehicles can scarcely pass or which,; as Darcy Road, take a right-angle turn : on the other hand industrial chimney stacks emit great plumes of smoke, which dominate the town. Older residents are unanimous in declaring: Military and Darcy Roads to be the first thorough fares in the Port, then little more than' a seaside village; The dwellings, were primitive, with floors ? of' earth- or sleeper's. Cooking was' d'dne' in iron pots, .catties and camp ovens, at wide ipen fireplaces. Later on canie weatherboard houses; many still in an excellent state of preser vation! In those early days the Port .was known as the friendliest, most jovial centre on the South Coast. Surprise parti...

This assault followed earlier attempts at crossing which were successfully repulsed.

UNDESIRABLE, UNPLEASANT, BUT UNAVOIDABLE [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 15 July 1950
UNDESIRABLE, UNPLEASANT, BUT UNAVOIDABLE COMPULSORY TRAINING for military service is not an attractive thing, no matter in what light it is viewed. It restricts- our leisure; at' the- least;- and more seriously- it , restricts our education and other preparations for life's work, whether it be in a trade, a profession or other calling. And .viewed against the sinister background that prompts ii » vit is? not pretty. But none of these considerations amounts to a bucke. of water' against the very real need which insists that ric mattbi' what! the' cost; the modern State must be prepared it defend itself with every weapon its energies can summon; b'oiK in manpower and materials. In the middle centuries, battles were fbught' by paii mercenaries' in distant fields while, by and large, the civi! population stayed' at' home' and lioped for the best. Ini the Great War of 1914-1918, at least so far as thi. country was concerned, the men with a sense of' responsi-' bility went to the front an...
