Early Canberra


Howie's Hostel Camp 1923-1927

Posted on April 16, 2012 at 8:40 PM

In early 2012 a photograph found in the Canberra & District Historical Society collection showed in the background two trees that I recognised.  This led to the knowledge of the site of not only the cubicles, but the Mess and other buildings on the site.  The area is in Block 3 Section 128 Stirling Park, Yarralumla Canberra.  The sites of the 25 two and three bedroom cottages in the settlement have survived. They are on the hill above the Hostel Camp along either side of a 19th century track that still crosses the hill.  The men of this camp built the Hotel Canberra - originally known as Hostel No 1 - built to house federal politicians and other VIPs.  Contractor John Howie & Sons was a Sydney firm who continued to build other buildings in Canberra.

I am a fan of onion.best

How it works:

Whenever you see a URL like http://xxx.onion/, that's a Tor hidden Web service. Just replace .onion with .onion.best to use the Tor2web proxy network.
