THE SKYLINE. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Should do Something. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 2 March 1914

''' ' THE SKYLINE. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Should do Something. The subject of the skyline has been given no consideration of any practical order by any one of the Australian cities. There have been inter mittent sectional movements for reform in most, if not all; of the capitals: that is, if what has occurred could be described as 'movements.' In nearly every case all that has been done has been 'to say a thing in such a way and at such a time as to ensure press publicity. We write generally, there having been, of course, notable exceptions.' Some years ago the late Nor man belie wrote, a comprehensive criticism lor 'Building/' and the late Colonel Vernon made caustic reference to the subject in the paper, en titled 'The Twin Professions,' which he contri buted' to the Science Congress. To the Sydney press of last week, also, President John Sulman, F.R.I.B.A., and Vice-President J. D. Fitzgerald', of the Town Planning Association, each contributed interesting articles. Their...

FROM A MELBOURNE CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 2 March 1914

FROM A MELBOURNE CORRESPONDENT. In the beginning— and lord knows how long ago that is — the Town Clerk was commissioned to scrape the rust from our building regulations (dated is IS) and shine them up with a little modern polish. But as, in the course of time, it became apparent that the Town Clerk had other scraping and polishing to do, the job was handed over to his deputy. There they remained for some time. Just when the council thought that a bright set of regulations would be popped upon them at one casual meeting, the Assistant Town Clerk became ill. As there was still some scraping to do the documents were sent back to the Town Clerk's department. And there they are to-day.

COUNTRY BUILDERS' ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 9 March 1914

COUNTRY BUILDERS' ASSOCIATIONS. When the reports of the affiliated country associations were being discussed at the last meet ing of the N.S.W. Master Builders' Association, surprise was expressed at the absence of bodies in certain important centres, such as Goulburn and Bathurst. It was considered that it was. the duty of the Association to promote organisation among master builders. The, trouble to the present had been the want of time, and the amount; of attention necessary to the affairs of the Association. Some day in the future, it was pictured, industrial strife Avould temporarily cease. Then the secre tary could go to certain centres and organise associations 101 ainnaiion wirn me parent uocy. Meanwhile it was considered a good idea if promi nent builders in those centres could be written to and promised assistance if they would supply the initiative. It is evident that the Association recognises the necessity of having builders thoroughly organised throughout the State, so...
