REAL ESTATE Canberra Leases INCREASED ACTIVITY [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

REAL ESTATE Canberra Leases INCREASED ACTIVITY The most interesting feature of the Real, Estate Market during the week has been the keen demand for Civic Centre business blocks as investments. Messrs. Woodgers and Calthorpe re- port that any block available for re- sale is readily snapped up and it is becoming increasingly difficult to se- cure anything in that neighbourhood. There is also a big demand for blocks in the industrial area and several of these have changed hands.   It is rumoured that another auction sale will take place early in the New year and this will probably cover the balance of the Civic Centre No. 2 Sub- division, comprising about 11 blocks which were reserved from the last sale and the few remaining Industrial Blocks which, were withdrawn from   sale.   A good demand also exists for East- lake and Ainslie residential blocks. Rod Hill leases suitable for the build- ing; of shelter class homes aro In ready dejiiand, and sel...

NEW BRITISH SIXES. A Satisfactory Trend. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

NEW BRITISH SIXES. A Satisfactory Trend. British' manufacturers arc making a determined entry into the six-cylinder I field. Such sixes as the Rolls-Royce | luyd the-Xancoiiter have, until recently, bpop the limited, British contribution to I six-cylinder design, _ and * nothing has | boen available in the popular price class. A six-cylinder at less than £800 ' was considered unworthy of production by British manufacturers five years ago. The demand for light American sixes I has forced British factories to con- | sider the production of *this type. ' AVithin the last two years, over dozçn medium-_j)riced sizes have made their appearance.'Four of these makes | have been introduced this year. Un- fortunately, the British designer has I not yet entered the cheap six market, j 'Çhe cheapest of these new British sixes^ is priced at £375, in Great Brit- ain. 'The majority aro in the £400 to j £600 class, and are thus not true com- petitors with the popular-priced Amer- ican and Canadian ...
