The Lighting of Elwood. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914

rhe Lighting of Elwood. A verdict of accidental death has >een returned by the city coroner as :he outcome of a fatal accident that ,ccurred to a motorist at the corner of Glenhuntly road and Ormond road on the night 'of May 20. A Mel. bourne paper, on the plea of insuffi. cient lighting, blames the St. Kilda council for the accident, but judging from a discussion that took place in the council the other evening this view of the case is strongly resented. Speaking of the motor fatality Cr Love said while he regretted the occurrence, the public should not be under the impression that it was the result of bad lighting. A great deal more care should be taken by people who drove motor cars, as they not only endangered themselves but the public. Cr Barnet denied that the want of lighting had anything to do with the fatality, whilst Cr Gibbs expressed the view that vehicular traffic of all kinds was supposed to carry their own lights. The council lighted up thoroughfares for the benefi...

A Long Delayed Subject [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 6 June 1914

A Long Delayed Subject The Prahran council had another discussion on Monday evening over what seems to be a never ending proposal as to whether the Town Hall should or should not be erected on another site. A certain deoision was arrived at-time will let it be known if it were a progressive move -to have estimates prepared on existing plans as to the cost of ereot ing municipal buildings on an area similar to the present site. People are just about earnestly enquiring whether the whole business is ever to be settled. It is recognised that the council is up against a proposition that necessitates much care and thought in its solution. Allied to the Town Hall site question are matters of sentiment, finance and convenience. What is the most preferable course to pursue ? Per haps some ratepayer will set out a clear and workable proposal-that which " amidst things incomprehen sible provides things lucid and satisfying, amidst things baneful and disordered things joyous and shapely."

Work that is Needed. TOORAK ROAD AND SURREY ROAD. Si;eaking at the Prahran Council meeting on Monday evening, Coun cillor Nicolson said it was time sub stantial improvements were effected in Toarak road, South Yarra, from Punt road to the railway station. The flags, which had been down for thirty or forty years, were in a very bad state, and_.required renewinig. He asked that the surveyor should give consideration to the matter. Cr Gianri read a letter he had re ceived from ex-Or Holdsworth, in which the latter bitterly complained of the condition of Surrey road after a rainfall. A photograph depicting its Mlooded state was producea. The tenants were leaving on account of the occasional flooding of the road. Mr Holdsworth asked that the Can terbury road drainage, so long de layed, should be put in hand, and thus put an end to the flooding of Surrey road, which was " a standing disgrace to the city of Prahran."
