It is essential for those not familiar with New Zealand conditions to remember that the North Island has a population which even now is only about one million, and that less than one hundred years ago the main area was still under dense virgin forest. S. Irwin Crookes

The History and Progress of Structural Engineering in the Present Century V. Municipal Building

DURING the present century structural engineering has made great strides in connection with works carried out by municipal authorities, civic centres, town halls, art galleries, baths and buildings of other types erected for Corporations or local authorities. At the end of the nineteenth century, these were built without any assistance from professional structural engineers under current by-laws, with thick walls to comply with the accepted schedules for specified lengths and heights. Floors were often of vaulted brickwork between heavy wrought iron joists, steel was just beginning to find its way into general use, and concrete was being adopted for horizontal surfaces, reinforced mostly with filler joists. There were, however, several brands of proprietary fireproof (so-called) floors on the market. Major E.C.P. Monson
