WAR MEMORIAL For Ainslie Site SELECTING A DESIGN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

WAR MEMORIAL For Ainslie Site SELECTING A DESIGN The difficult task set the committee of judges who are to choose the best design submitted for an Australian War Memorial for Canberra is being pushed on with and the designs have been narrowed down to half the origin- al number.                       As the result of an inspection of the vantage points commanding views of the city, a prominence near the foot of Mount Ainslie, which commands the whole valley in which Canberra stands,   has been selected as the site of the memorial. The memorial is to take the form of a Hall of memory to the Dead and will comprise also courts and galleries suit-   able for housing the Australian War Memorial Collection. A competition was commenced in November last for the best design of such a building, which is to cost less than £250,0...

VANDALISM IN SHELTER SHEDS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

VANDALISM IN SHELTER SHEDS Although some pains have been tak- en to provide adequate shelter sheds for intending bus passengers at var- ious points in the city where other shelter is not available, some disap- pointment has been occasioned the re- sponsible authorities at the treatment which some accommodation has re- ceived. The sheds were designed primar- ily for the use of children bound to and from school, and are used most by juveniles. Complaints having been made to the police, an inspection re- vealed that a considerable number of tiles on the roof of the shelter plac- ed in Adelaide Avenue had been broken apparently by stones. Disfigurement to the walls of the sheds had com- pleted the destructive efforts. In     the opinion of the police, children have been responsible for the damage.

BISHOP'S VISION [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

BISHOP'S VISION Referring in his address to the Angli- can Synod at Grafton to the Federal capital, Bishop Ashton asked if Can- berra, was to be left as a new town or as an ordinary parish in a country diocese. He would dream, he said, of the erection of a noble cathedral there, which would contain the seat of an Archbishop, who would be the Primate of all Australia, and, unencumbered with the care of a great diocese, would be able to devote himself mainly to the larger interests of the Church as a whole in all its manifold operations in   the great Commonwealth. Was such a vision too lofty for practical realisa- tion? He did not think it should be.

SOUTH AINSLIE NEW SUBURB RISING HUNDRED COTTAGES BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 3 September 1926

SOUTH AINSLIE NEW SUBURB RISING HUNDRED COTTAGES BUILDING. ----   Within three months a totally dif- ferent aspect has been placed on the grassy acres which slope gently South- ward from Ainslie Avenue, and the new suburb of South Ainslie is daily taking form. The subdivision of the suburb of South Ainslie was completed early this year, and in May some of the leases were offered for sale at auction. The area lies between Ainslie Avenue and Prospect Parkway, being bounded on the South Western alignment by the railway reserve, and on the Eastern side by Canberra Avenue. Only six- teen sections of the suburb were de- tailed in the plan available to the pub- lic, and these indicate rather charact- eristically the general city layout. Sections 21 to 29, for instance, and sections 35 to 37, are laid out round two blocks of gardens. Here and there amid the allotments, are church sites, and reservations for church re-   sidences, while Section 14 is occupied wholly...

EASTLAKE RETAIL SHOPS NEW PREMISES IN OCCUPATION KEEN DEMAND FOR MORE SITES The popularity of Eastlake as a retail shopping centre is rapidly increasing, and during the last two weeks, several new shops have been opened immediately upon completion of the premises. The centre presented a busy sight every afternoon this week, and there is evidence to show that the increase in the number of shops and the larger range of products and goods for sale is resulting in a larger volume of business for the centre generally. A considerable increase in shop building is fore- shadowed. When the first sale of leases was held at Canberra, in 1924, the most satisfactory aspect of the sale was the demand for leases at Eastlake, in and   around the retail trading centre. The spirited bidding which ensued for the first block may be recalled. For lease No. 1 of Section 21, the bidding ran up to £2050, when it was knocked down to J. B. Young, Ltd. This was £1100 in excess of the value set up...

TURF NCTES. WHEN CHAMPIONS MEET, At Warwick' Farm next Saturday, in- terest will undoubtedly be centered     around the meeting of the two Cham- pions, Valicare and Windbag.
