Weekly News-Letter FROM AN APPRENTICE TO HIS MOTHER. Dear Mum, . My mate, Pommy, the improver, is (buying a motor car on time payment, second hand for £5. He took it to the garage the other day and they wanted to charge him for, leaving it there, because they said they hadn't any guarantee that he would come for it. He's going to take me for some spins as soon as he knows how to drive it. ; : It's kn American machine and lie says we. won't be getting them into Australia soon, be cause we are balancing the imports and ex ports, which has something to do with cars from America (but I don't know what would happen if Anierica retaliated and decided not to let us have any petrol) ; and after that, as soon as Mr. Scullin gets to England, he will develop an Empire spirit and we will get Brit ish .cars only.

COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND CHARM [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 10 September 1930
COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND CHARM The English type of house has many Australian admirers, a fact that is well borne out by a survey of practically any Sydney suburb, where some domestic architecture embodying our ancestral characteristics is sure to be found. Our illustration shows a villa residence of this type, which is very delightful in design and planning, with the texture derived from the brickwork contrasting with the half-timbering and diamond-paned windows. The plan is simple, spacious and most ' convenient;, the inner portion of the front porch seems a little narrow (that is a detail), but the stair hall from which opens the lounge and dining rooms, would make a very fine feature, with the stairs ascending from it, pn the right. Upstairs this generosity of planning is preserved in the ample dimensions of the upper hall, while tha best bedroom, with bay and dormer should prove bright and cheerful. Some people regard a foot more than is absolutelv necessary in a hall or passage...

The Master Builders REPORTS OF MEETINGS EASTERN SUBURBS BRANCH Advances for Homes [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 10 September 1930
The Master Builders ? REPORTS OF MEETINGS EASTERN SUBURBS BRANCH Advances for Homes At the meeting of .the Eastern \ Suburbs' Branch of the Master Builders' Association last Monday; evening, a suggestion . was made that the Government be asked to advance money to the Savings Bank for advances on the 75 per cent, basis for the building of bonus.

Branch at its last meeting, was also discussed and agreement was expressed wi'.h that Branch that some definite action should be taken against methods adopted in forcing purch...

HERE AND THERE The Interesting, Extraordinary and Instructive THE BUILDINGS OF MAN [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 10 September 1930
H ERE AN I The Interesting, Extraon THE BUILD IN vi,: Man has always been a builder. That is probably one of. his greatest distinctions from ? lower life, for with a few exceptions ruch ar. the beaver, bird and mole, the fauna of the globe takes the world as it Comes and makes no attempt to provide shelter for themselves against the elements. The few rough boughs of our ancestors at the. dawn of civilisation gave way to the stone and wood hut, till grad ually man began to realise the advantages and ? amenities of a good house and since then he has never stopped buil din - It must naturally follow that since these kindred ancient arts of architecture and build ing are as old as man, /they; provide one of the most exhaustive and interesting Of studies. . 'Civilisations have come and gone and were it not for the ruins of their buildings we should never know that they even existed, as it is, . by careful study of the ruins of their houses and cities we are able to piece together the mos...
