Brick Areas [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 21 March 1914

Brick Areas. There is a great tendency amongst municipal councils, when they wish to safeguard any particular street against the erection or small buildings to proclaim that particular street or area a brick area, for brick areas are supposed to ensure a better class of building being erected. If any person should prefer to erect a wooden resi dence in the brick area, he must erect his house some 50 feet back from the roadway. The man who prefers a wooden house is, therefore, placed at a great disadvantage, for it means that the front of his house will be about half way back from the adjoin ing buildings. Now, of course, there are many persons who much prefer a wooden to a brick house, and even go so far as to say that they would not live in a house of the latter construc tion. Some years ago a proposal was made by one of the neighboring muni cipalities that, in preference to pro claiming brick areas, a much better plan would be to place a minimum price upon the cost of a house in c...

PRAHRAN v. FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 21 March 1914

PRAIRAN v. FITZROY. The former team journeyed to Fitzroy to fulfil their engagement with the latter team, but there was very little interest evinced in the match, as neither team had any chance of being included in the finals., The home team batted first, and failed badly, all being out for 82 runs. The main factor in their downfall was Blackie's bowling. He sent down 19 overs, and secured six wickets for 41 runs. Prahran did much better, making 132 runs for the loss of only four wickets at drawing of stumps. All their batsmen showed good form, but Bowden's 48 was the best performance. He hit one beautiful sixer, S. Stephens 23, G. Healy 20 not Sout, C. Cusdin 14, T. Horan 14, and G. Rogers 11 not out were the other contributors to the total.
