The Master Builders REPORTS OF MEETINGS PARENT BODY Property Tax Criticised [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

The Master Builders REPORTS OF MEETINGS PARENT BODY Property Tax Criticised The incidence of the new Property Tax was criticised at the meeting of the Parent Body of the Master Builders' 'Association last night as a result of a letter from the Eastern Sub urbs' Branch of the Association asking the Parent Body to support it in registering a protest v against the tax. It was pointed out that the tax would act as a severe blow, to the industry of - the specu lative builder in Sydney and in many cases put him out of business altogether. This, it was claimed, would react on the. working man - , il was ikj tnc apevumuve uuuu^r uicvt man}' workmen had looked in the past and* would - look in the/ future to help them in becoming the owners of their own homes. The tax, further, would have the .effect of deterring people from putting their money into prop erty and so create unemployment in so fai as the operations of the spec, builder would cease. , One. member instanced a case where his solic...

TRADES REGISTRATION A Debatable Subject [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

TRADES REGISTRATION A Debatable Subject From New . Zealand comes the report that a deputation of interested persons recently interviewed the Minister for Labour, and ask-' ed that painters should be licensed in the sa .. way plumbers are. The arguments in favour as , advanced by the^ employers were that they, wanted to- raise the status of the trade, by cutting out inex perienced men. As a rule, it was said that, householders thought more of price than of quality, as in the estimation any /one , could put tnc paint on. bome house owners took the precaution of providing the paint in order * to be sure good stuff was used. The representative of the employees said that his federation was in accord with the employers, in demanding registration. Even if the arguments brought forward were universally, accepted, the question is debatable - as to whether, registration would stop those who were not. registered from ..doing painting ..work. , ? ... ? ' ? ? In the', case of plumbers, .the over...

ABOUT WALL PAPERS Some Historic Facts [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

ABOUT WALL PAPERS - Some Historic Facts When walls begin to look shabby, the house wife debates as to whether they shall be panel led, painted or papered, and because the variety made, possible bv wall papering is so great, ? it invariably wins the day. Two centuries ago, wall papering was looked upon more or -less as -a cheap substitute for more expensive wall coverings, as it rather suggested tapestr3-; but* wj thin 100 years since paper became fash ionable;, many firms have specialised in historic . scenes and other designs and completely .cap tivated the mind and the market. A noted French firm in Paris produced;, amongst other novelties, scenes from Caotain Cook's voyages. A panorama of the Bay of : Naples may still be seen on the walls 'of r room in the White Hart Inn' at St. Austell, Cornwall, in England. In 1781 in Clantarf, Ireland, the widowed daughter of the Earl of .Desart,. in orcler -to evidence how disconsolate she was, authorised - a Dublin upholsterer to put her hou...

BLACK PIGMENTS Graphite and Others [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

BLACK PIGMENTS Graphite and Others The consideration of black pigments almost gives us conclusive evidence of what a little most of us know about the constituents of paints. In dealing with 'graphite,' which is one important element in black pigments, we find first that the name originates in .the Greek verb to 'write,' also that- it is known as plumbago, black lead, and other names. Graphite is found in many parts of the r world, and was formerly supposed to contain lead, and therefore was ' often called black lead, or. plumbago. It is a soft, shiny, greyish black substance, smooth and soapy to the touch, and as such is often used dry to make drawers and other woodwork run smoothly; It is a good conductor of both heat and'*elec- tricity, and when rubbed on paper leaves a dry black mark which gives it such popularit in pencil making, in which cage the natural graphite is, purified by grinding, and carefully washed free from gritty matter. It i§ then mixed with the finest washed clay...

THE PAINTERS' PAGE RED LEAD One of the Oldest [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

THE PAINTERS' PAGE RED LEAD One of the Oldest Under the name 'Minium' that valuable i nient, led, lead, was well known to the Egypt-; ians of old times. in its manufacture, the starting basis is metallic lead and the process of manufacture consists of: 1st. the conversion of metallic lead into 'massicot'; 2nd, making nuissicot into red lead. ? * In making massicot, or 'dross,' care imiit be taken not to raise the heat of the rever beratory furnace tod high. The process of making this 'dross' or massicot is -known as drossing. . To make this yellow massicot into red lead, the same, furnace, is used at a low red heat and plenty of air to ensure .perfect oxidation. The operation takes? about 15 hours. ?Red lead is of a bright scarlet red colou', and very fine in texture. It has excellent bod}'- and is quite permanent with plenty of ; hiding power. When heated gently in air the colour changes to a dark brown red, but on cooling it regains its colour. V 1 Red lead is', largely used, when...

BURNSIDE HOME, PARRAMATTA (N.S.W.) Now Nearing Completion [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 26 November 1930

BURNSIDE HOM.E, PARRAMATTA (N.S.W.) Now Nearing Completion It is hard to improve on good brickwork, a fact which is once again borne out by the illus tration above, for by the use of this material, texture, colour, and ornament can all be im parted by means of this structural material, while the size of the unit limits or expands its decorative effects according to the ingenuity of the designer. A spirit of serene domesticity prevails; all suggestion of institutionalism being eschewed in the entire Burnside Home group of buildings. The overhanging roofs, well proportioned to the walls maintain the domestic impression whilst contributing the much needed protection from the sun's rays. The large open space behind the arche- ,-hould prove a delightful spot to sit and play in the heat of day in summer or away from the cruel blasts of the winter season. The architects were Power, Adam & Munnings; MacKenzie. Adams Ltd., the master builders.
