CONCRETE L. & N.E. RAILWAY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

CONCRETE L. & N.E. RAILWAY Concrete and reinforced concrete structures and products are playing an increasingly important part in reducing maintenance costs on some of the larg- est railway companies operating in Great Britain, which are adopting con- crete in place of steel, iron, and lum- ber wherever possible. The concrete yards of the London and Northeastern Railway Co., at Derby, England, affords a characteristic ex- ample. The line is one of the four largest in the British Isles and its con- crete yard at Derby supplies its Great Northern and Great Central sections. In 1925, more than 22,000 concrete articles, of varying sizes and types, not includ- ing heavy slabs and girders, especially made for bridgework, were turned out from this yard. The yard is raised   above natural ground level, and has dock walls built on three sides of it to facilitate handling materials, raw materials coming in one side, and the finished article being despatched from the other...

CANBERRA AS A TRADE MARK [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

CANBERRA AS A TRADE MARK Has Canberra been built for ex- ploitation by every trader who has goods for sale? This is a question to which the Commonwealth Govern- ment might pay a little attention be- fore an invidious practice is carried too far. The name Canberra was sure- ly never meant to be a business catch cry or a trade mark at the beck and call of every trader. It is natural of   course that enterprising business men should attach more importance to Can- berra than some near sighted poli- ticians, for the man of business is apt to visualise Canberra's future     more clearly and is thus the keener to secure it as a mark for his good. The practice has gone too far how- ever. Other names, Anzac for instance, has been regarded as sacrosanct by the Federal Government, why not the name of the seat of Government? Instances of inappropriate use of "Canberra" abound. Take the case of a delapit- ated building in one of the streets of Sydney which ...

NEW BRICKWORKS AT CAPTAIN'S FLAT ORDERS FROM CANBERRA The new brickworks at Cap- tain's Flat of Mr. W. H. Mason,   were officially opened on Wednes- day of last week. Quantities of the bricks are to find their way into Canberra. In Canberra the demand for bricks is imperative. Millions are required for the ever increasing building oper- ations throughout the capital city. To supply this need, several brick- works have started in Queanbeyan. Messrs. Shannon and Newbold already have kilns in active operation, and re- cently Mr. W. H. Mason started a new brick works about four miles out of Queanbeyan, on the Captain's Flat Road. Five kilns have been built, each with a capacity of from 75,000 to 108,000 bricks. The present output is 100,000 bricks a week, and exten- sions are in hand to increase this num- ber. The works have cost £5,000 and given employment to 30 men, also sev- eral wood cutters and carters. Mr. Mason is now ready to supply local orders and a steady output ...

FAREWELL TO DUNK ISLAND. Last of the Beachcomber [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

FAREWELL TO DUNK ISLAND. Last of the Beachcomber To every lover of wild life, to every naturalist, actual or potential, to every man or woman fretted by the carking cares of a complex civilisation, to all these, Dunk Island, despite its unbeau- tiful name, must ever be an enchanted realm, another "purple land" made famous by the Australian Hudson, E. J. Banfield, the journalist, who, jaded by overwork, but not, as is commonly known, a sufferer from phthisis, in 1807 left the mainland of Queensland for this tropic isle where be remained with his faithful wife, and their devoted ser- vant Essie, till his death twenty-five years later. For his earlier books, "Confessions of a Beachcomber," "My Tropic Isle," and "Tropic Days," the demand steadily in- creases, and to these "Last Leaves from Dunk Island" (Angus and Robert-   son), forms a fitting pendant. In an appreciative and admirably written introduction, Mr. A. H. Chis- holm tells of the hordes of visitors  ...
