The Soldiers Walk, Queens Domain, Hobart


Other Tasmanian Avenues - Bishopsbourne

On Saturday the tree-planting in connection with the soldiers’ avenue took place, in the presence of a large and representative gathering. Amongst those present were the Premier and Mrs Lee, Mr. J H Freeland (Warden) and Mrs Freeland, Councillors TC Archer, C Titmus, C Herbert, Geo McQueen, R G Stokes ad Mrs Stokes. Mrs S Freeland (mother of the Warden) made a special trip from Launceston to the place of her childhood days some 70 odd years ago, and was heartily congratulated by many of her old friends on being able to be present. Trees were planted by the Premier, Mrs Lee, Warden, and Mr. T C Archer, each giving an appropriate address. The Longford state school drum and fife, under Mr. F J McCabe, head teacher, supplied a number of selections, which were much appreciated. Canon Wilmer moved a vote of thanks to the Premier and Mr. McCabe, which was carried with cheers, also for the returned men and the boys at the front.
