CHECK-UP ON WOLLONGONG'S TRANSPORT [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 10 July 1950
CHECK-UP ON WOLLONGONG'S' TRANSPORT ' IT IS NOT unreasonable to hope for practical results from the visit this week of the new State Minister for Trans port (Mr. W. F. Sheahan). He will be accompanied by the Commissioner for Transport and Highway's (Mr. Reg Win district's transport system.' Later he 'will return, accbm-' panied by departmental officers, with a view to taking action in such directions as ihe initial visit may suggest. Mr. Winsor and Mr. Sheahan are both 'new brooms' in their respective offices and new broom's notoriously sweep clean.' They are not cluttered up with the dust of agou ot.Oj habit. Both meri— Minister and Commissioner — will bo keen to show their paces, and the Wollongong transport 'track', if somewhat bumpy, certainly offers plenty of scope. BUT THERE is considerably more than 'new broom' to Mr. Sheahan. As Minister for Lands in fhe previous State Government, he did a job which aroused the admiration of everyone with whom he came in contact, including s...

The News Behind The News [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 10 July 1950
The News Behind The News (By 'Insider') VICTOR SYLVANDER, a Thirroul builder, tells me he has a couple of keys he wants to give away.
