Power supplies in the Nayland Road area were interrupted when this car came to an abrupt stop against a power pole, recently. Police and power board men were quickly on the scene. One power board chap commented: "If you want to hit a power pole don't hit one on a corner." This pole is on the corner of Nayland and Quarantine Roads and carried a complex of equipment. No one was injured


Radio listeners back in 1923 might remember the broadcasts received from Radio 2Ya which was operated by Mr L. W. Field on a wave length of 335 metres. Mr Field built the transmitter and broadcasted on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 7.30p.m. and 10.30p.m. Broadcasting was done from Wilkins and Field in Hardy Street and it was only recently that the giant aerial was pulled down. Shown with the radio is Mr David Field.
