The Colonial Anmmunition Company applied to the Footecray Council on Monday last to provide lighting from Nicholson-street to their works near the Saltwater Iiver. They wished the council to maintain a light at the end of Shelbourne-avonue.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 31 October 1914

IReaders of the "Advertiser" will remember the dilliculty experienced by this paper in persuading councillors that the only system by which a local electric light scheme could be Inmde profitable was by securing the. current from the Melbourne City Council. The council, as constituted in those days, favored the installation of a local plant to generate the current, and it took nonths of advocacy, backed up by authoritative information and indis putable figures to press the point home. Since then it has frequently been ad mitted that the right course was pur sued ; it is known now that there was a probability of rank disastrous failure had the attempt been made to generate electricity locally to retail at a price that would have attracted custom, and best evidence of all Footscray's venture and methods have since been followed by the municipalities of Brunswick, Port Melbourne, Northcote and Wil liamstown. The council of the last named municipality decided to follow in Footscray's st...
