LONGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 19 December 1884
LONGWOOD. - (FROM OU?R OWN COR.EsroNDE-T). The new Mechanics' Institute which has been erected in Longwood by the indc fatigable exertions of some of the resi dents, was opened on Friday evening by the memubers of the Longwood Amlateur Dramatic Club giving a performance. It was expected that lMessrs. Hall and Graham, APs L. A., would be present to open the building, but owing to the pro rogation of Parliament these gentlemen were unable to attend. The building is 48 by 20, exclusive of the stage, which is a good size. It is built of brick and is very substantial looking, and quite an or nament to the town. The only defect is the floor which has been badly laid down, as the boards at one end have fallen fully six inches. The contract price was £2:0 16s., but owing to several alterations that has been mande, increased it to £?i3 Uts. The most of this has been paid, buc as there is still a small sum owing, the coim snittee intend to'make an energetic canvass of the district, which we h...
