Moving into the town"
Next to the station was Cullimore Street (Possibly names for the Cullimores who lived there)
It abutted Bald Hills Road then Grand, Wing, Brain, up to Parer western side had been subdivided from J & G Buckby land Lot 30
Lot 262 was designated as a Sportsground and the following lots were still of just over 4 acres each and abutted Whitehill, Norris and Barbour's blocks.
Moving in an easterly direction along then to Barbour Road and to Norris Road
Norris Road was named through to Zillmere Road and to W J Wards lot of 118 acres.
Bit hard to imagine that the road could be that long!!!!!
Lot 7 owned by W J Ward was the Carseldine Campus, and then on the left hand side of the railway line he owned Carseldine. It was all subdivided
On the corner of Roghan Road and Beams road, between Lacey road and Norris Road,
S. Simpson Lot 16 subdivided
Then Lacey to Telegraph Road with Norris Road on the east
Lot 189 J Leacy 11 acre Railway line running through Simpson Lot 16 and Leacy Lot 189
Fronting Telegraph Road to Norris Road
A Norris Lot 190
E Buckby Lot 191 20 acres
J Leacy Lot 192 19 acres
On Eastern side of Norris Road Roghan Road
C Tegge Lot 198

Following along Telegraph Road
C. Brown Lot 183 20 acres
J. Leacy Lot 182 20 acres
Then W J Loudon's original Lot 25 - Purchased by D Brown has been sub-divided into 12 Lots
4 of them fronting Telegraph Road, 4 fronting a new road of Phillips Street south side, and 4 fronting Phillips street north side.
J Ferguson's land Lot 96 has been subdivided into 5 lots between Barbour corner with Jude Street
J. Grant's Lot 97 on the western side of Jude Street has been subdivided into 8 lots and contains the Reservoir easements. Resub 2 contains the Reservoir. His land abuts Norris Road
It appears that some of the residents were without access to the water reservoir, they had to contribute to the cost of the supply. The Progress Association had to collect the money from the landowners in the previously held Sandgate portion of the suburb, those streets Denham, Sheaffe, Darragh and Barrett. These areas also did not have access to sewerage. It was all septic.
That was the case with all the broad acreage properties, our own included.
W Whitehills, Norris and Barbour's land has been subdivided into 3 lots the land abutting Barbour into 36 acres, the next lot Sub 2 would be the TAFE College of 54 acres and the northern portion Sub 1 of 53 acres. Norris Road State School is on that lot.
Going northwards towards Bald Hills Road (now Bracken Ridge Road) Lot 99 has been subdivided into 4 lots, with Sub 1 at the location of Harold Keily Park, or Hoyland Street.
On the southern side of Barbour Road
R. Speedy owned Lots 175, 176, 177 each of 18+ acres now the Oakes Estate
E Anson owned Lot 176 on the corner of Norris and Barbour Southern side.
On the eastern side
A McCallam Lot 179
D Buckley Lot 180
R. Cribbb Lot 181 this then becomes the corner of Barbour Road, and abuts Phillips Street coming up the hill. When he died in 1894 is two sons were the beneficiaries, and the land was subject to Transmission by Death.
On one of these blocks , Davis Brothers had a sand dredging business. All the sandy loam washed down from the hills and was collected.
It was beautiful sand, and when we were building the kindergarten we weren't allowed to use it!
Didn't comply with the regulations apparently.
However, it is the lands in the area bounded by Lacey Road to Barbour Road and to Telegraph Road, that are quite intriguing.
There was never anything on the lands, except a brick dwelling next to the railway crossing which contained the biggest termite nest imaginable.
But who planted the pine grove on the lands owned by Mr R Speedy?
And what became of the lands owned by A Lacy and S Simpson on Telegraph Road and then across the road from them. Where these lands all resumed when the Power Lines were installed? or where they acquired for the Railways Department who it was often alluded to, planned to install a major complex, or were they acquired for the proposed widening of Telegraph Road?
A Robert Speedy was involved in politics in Ithaca
