Hotel Alexandra, Leura. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

Hotel Alexandra, Leura. Right in the very centre of the most varied and beautiful scenery of the far-famed Blue Mountains stands the Hotel Alexandra. The tastefully laid out and well-kept grounds, abut right on the Railway Station. The bar and its rooms are at the back of the visitors' quarters, and face the main trunk road from Sydney to Bathnrst, so that the visitors' and reception rooms are practically detached ; and from the ample verandahs on the southern side, a magnifi cent panorama of cliff and forest, and deep ravine, meets the gaze of the visitor, and discloses at every point a. wondrous lands cape of varied beauty. The great, grey, weather-beaten cliffs that guard the cele brated Kiinimbla V alley, through which the tumbled falls and sparkling cascades of many mountain rivulets meet and meander, to form an affluent of the Wollondilly and other rivers, stand like sentinels keeping, guard over the exquisite beauties spread with lavish hand all round. Great masses of gauze-l...

Iyiving on the these high altitudes ,we are enabled to breath a most exhilarating' air, the atmosphere being clearer, our vision is keener, and in the quiet of the Mountains, away from the noise and din of the city, we can ponder over the problems that make lire difheult, it not despondent to. the weary workers in the populous centres.

The Blue Mountain Shire Council Meets The Katoomba Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

The Blue Mountain Shire Council Meets The Katoomba Municipal Council. Alderman Lindeman's resolution, having for its object the amalgamation of the Municipality with the Shire, and which has been before both Councils for some months past, was pretty freely discussed at the meeting of the Councils held for the purpose at the Aldermanic Chambers on Wednesday afternoon, and it was plain at the outset that if Aid. Iyindeman expected to carry his resolution he had a pretty stiff up-xiu-i. ngm ueiuie mm, ior ootn council lors and aldermen had decided views on the subject. The Mayor was voted to the chair, and the President, G. J. Waterhouse, Esq., explained the position in a few words, stating that the Shire Council had met the Aldermen for the purpose of seeing if^they were serious in the matter, because the propo sition came from the Municipal Council and not from the Shire, and if the aldermen were not serious they would be simply wast ing their time. Aid. Iyindeman explained his resol...

The Shire Council have been making - some useful road forming through the I^ake View Estate, but unfortunately have only half done the thing. Anyone is very liable to meet with a broken limb owing to the deep drop from footpath to roadway in places. Most certainly a lot of soil could have been taken off and so avoid the risk.

JOHN BRITTY WORTH. "The Father of Katoomba." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 March 1909

JOHN BRITTY NORTH. "The Father of Katoomba."   No more appropriate portrait could adorn our pages in this issue than that of John Britty North, so aptly, termed "the father   of Katoomba." Nature is not prolific of strong characters, and it is only once in a lifetime that a man of his stamp appears on the horizon, and when such a one does eventuate he leaves his mark for all time. Coming here thirty odd years ago, Mr. North found what had been a hidden mystery for untold ages—the rugged gran-     deur of the Mountain scenery, the beauti- ful Falls and charming valleys, and with a prophetic vision saw what was to be. Pos- sessing an energy and incomparable courage coupled with an indomitable will, he determined to lay the foundation of a great and glorious future for this, the most picturesque and magnificent portion of this country. Hastily constructing an unpre-   tentious little cottage under difficulties and obstacl...
