DANDENONG ROAD AND DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 July 1914

DANDENONG ROAD AND DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT LEAGUE. At its meeting on Monday even ing last, the Prahran Council was in receipt of a comnmunication from the Dandenong Road and District Im provement League (Mr Sydney W. Probert, secretary), pointing out the long detour vehicles had to take when coming from Waiora road to Wattletree road. It was suggested that about 50ft be cut off from the plantation on the north side, thus giving egress straight through. Cr Embling, chairman of the parks and gardens committee, said he had visited the locality with the engineer, and he thought the League's appli cation should be granted. The one sile of Dandenong road at the spot belonged to Caulfield, and the other to Prahran. Caulfield's cutting had not been continued, and the conse. quence was that traffio went on the tram track for a distance of about 70 yards. This was very dangerous. He moved that the League's request be granted. The cost would not be very much. Cr Ginn seconded the motion, which wa...

PACKINGTON STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 18 July 1914

PACKINGTON STREET. Cr 1-1, C. Heyward presented a petition from residents of Packington street, which had been formed for the last thirty years, protesting against the back yards of houses to be built on blocks known as the Bano'e estate facing the established street. Petitioners contended that if the back yards were allowed tu face Paokington street it would be con trary to the surveyor's and agent's advice at the time of purchasing. The depreciation of Packington-st. properties would be appalling, as it would turn a good street into a lane. As the sale of the Banole estate was shortly to take pace, Cr Hey ward asked for the suspension of the standing orders so that the petition could be dealt with there and then. Cr Flintoft, however, objected, holding that the council was power less in the matter. TIhe petition was made an order of the day for next meeting.

Jaokson at Mr Bowie's Post Oflice Hotel on Thursday even ing and presented him with a beautiful silver-mounted cigar case on the occasion of his birthday. Mlr Walter Nichol was vot'd to the chair, and, in making the pre sentation, referred to his long friend ship and acquaintance with '! our guest," whom lie probably knew for a longer period that anyone present. hr Jackson had always been a quiet, plodding citizen, one wbom no one had a word to say against, andi was respected everywhere. He carried his age well, and no doubt his early environment was greatly responsible for that; in his early days, he was living in a place siuated exactly between the church of the great John Knox and the Tollbooth gaols, Edinburgh; thus, of necessity, he had to be of good behaviour. He (the speaker) trusted their guest would be spared to see eany birthdays yet. Mr R. C. M. Strachan, in endors the toast, said...
