FORBES POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
FORBES POST OFFICE. Occupying a central position at the corner of Lachlan and Court streets, the site of the post office is one of the best in the town, and the building, with its clock tower, and flanked by the palatial Albion Hotel on the one side, and the imposnig structure of the Town Hall on the other, is a favorite with photographers, because of the , excellent picture this group makes. The edifice is .25 years old, and there was a time when the clock looked down on the conflagration which was consuming the Albion Hotel, the fierce heat threatening to blister its dial, but for a friendly cooling shower now and again from the firemen's hose. Now the old clock has to look upwards to see the tall observatory of the new hotel, which rose on the ashes of the old in 1889. It is a well-behaved clock, constructed by dead and gone Tornaghi, of Sydney, on the model of the metropolitan post office clock, having the same escapement. Under Mr A. F. Styche's care, it has not been known to f...

FORBES FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 15 December 1911
! FORBES FIRE BRIGADE. , The Forbes Fire Brigade is an ancient institution. It has occupied its present quarters next to the post office for the past twenty years. The first station was near the Town Hall, and then a move was made to another site near the present lockup in Court-street. The present station is a prick building, with two floors, and a look-out, from which a fine view of the town may be had. The bell is a , bit small, and not remarkable for its sonorousness, or its son orosity,-but it is always listened to with a great deal of interest. The equipment consists of one manual and one hose reel, and 1S00 feet of first class hose, together with two chemical fire extinguishers. The brigade numbers nine men, and the officer, Captain F.

There is no horse to convey the firemen and gear to a fire, and so they have either to commandeer a horse,...
