The Cause of Profanity [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 28 January 1921
The Cause of Profanity A lot of unnecessary profanity amongst motorists was caused on Sunday last by the action of the Shire Council in leaving the crossing at W.lls Street to the beach in an unfinished state of repair. Scores of motor cars negotiated the area of deep loose sand which separated Bay Street from Wells Street, but it proved a trying experience. Chaf feursmerged from the ordeal with a wild eye and savage visage. The repairs to the crossing have now been completed, and as the job only took three or four lays it seems reasonahle to inquire why the Coun cil did not start the work on \Monday instead of Friday, and thus save a lot of unnecessary inconvenience to Sunday visitors.
