Ladies and Gentlemen, With the example of my illustrious predecessors before me, I feel that I am at a loss in knowing how to give you such an Address as will be a worthy follower to those which have already been delivered to this Institution. Major James Petrie

Concrete Machinery - Part 1

Concrete Machinery - Part 1

LIKE it or not, concrete is with us. It is with us to stay and grows faster in its hold day by day. These facts being realised our course is obvious. It is for us to change those aspects of concrete which we do not like; and this we can do only by familiarising ourselves with not only the existing products but also with the processes of its manufacture and the machinery used therein. By this means only shall we place ourselves in a position to improve and enhance the possibilities of concrete. To recognise the full justice of this point of view it is necessary to go back in mind only a very few years and to recall the horrible monstrosities which resulted from the undisciplined introduction of cast iron mantle registers. These, at first, until taken under the wing of certain architectural designers were mongrels until refinement was induced into their outward expressions. H. Bryant Newbold

Housing: the essential factors in the provision of workmen's houses

Housing: the essential factors in the provision of workmen's houses

The essential factors that I have in mind for the purpose of this short article are labour and materials. There are others, including that of need. Space will not, however, permit oi my dealing with this aspect of the question, although I would summarise the views that I have previously and more definitely expressed with reference to it by saying that the need is very great indeed; and although variously estimated there can be no doubt that it is limited in practice only by the availability of our resources in labour, material and finance.
