Bridge over River was com­pleted

The Observer - - LIFE OUR GLADSTONE - PAULETTE FLINT

1927: The bridge over the Boyne River, be­tween Glad­stone and Miriam Vale, is now com­pleted and ready for traf­fic. It is a credit to the Cal­liope Shire clerk, Mr Rudd, who or­gan­ised the work, and car­ried it through to a suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion. Al­ready a de­cided in­crease in mo­tor traf­fic is no­tice­able. The bridge is a sub­stan­tial struc­ture, quite ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing the traf­fic for many years. It is to be hoped that ef­forts will be made by the mo­tor­ing pub­lic to have a sim­i­lar bridge put over the Cal­liope River on the Rock­hamp­ton side of our town.

1939: The death of Mr Angelo Cro­sisca which was re­ported from Bris­bane, re­moves one of the Port Cur­tis dis­trict’s pi­o­neer horse­men. De­ceased who was aged 60 years was the son of Mr Ge­orge Cro­sisca, one of the ear­li­est res­i­dents on the Cal­liope gold­field, and fol­lowed the oc­cu­pa­tion of sad­dler with an­other pi­o­neer, Mr Harry Hawthorne. In lat­ter years, Mr Cro­sisca was known as one of the dis­trict’s best drovers, bring­ing cat­tle to Glad­stone meat­works.

1952: The Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil has granted the Glad­stone Town Coun­cil Trea­sury loan of £837 ($1674) and a sub­sidy of £243 ($486) for a bi­tu­men re­seal and widen­ing job on the cause­way con­nect­ing Yar­roon and Kent Sts.
