ESPLANADE IMPROVEMENTS.

Kiosk and Dressing Rooms.

The Perth City Council has adopted a plan for the formation of an artistically designed garden with carriage-ways and footpaths which will occupy five-eighths

or an acre on the Esplanade-Barrack-street corner of the Esplanade reserve and have a frontage of about 207 feet to each street, necessitating the removal of the existing tearooms. On a site further west the council has decided to construct a lar'ge kiosk, with sports dressing-rooms at the rear for which tenders will be called at an early date. These buildings, designed by Mr. L. B. Cumpston, which are de- picted in the accompanying drawings, will be built first, occupying a position about 15 feet back from the footpath, after which work will be commenced on the garden. The refreshment kiosk will be an oct- agonal tile roofed building of one storey, 63ft. square, having a servery and bar in the centre. Around the bar on the eastern side there will be a wide space and two bays for tables, and on the other side

will be a kitchen and store rooms, while provision has been made for lavatories for men and women. Stairs lead to the turret, where there will be an orchestral enclosure measuring about 14ft. by 12ft. Further west, but separated by a small yard, will be tile roofed sports dressing rooms, each Ii5 feet by 12 feet., five for men and one for women. This building will measure 66ft. by 38ft., and have a passage 5ft. wide running down the centre, with shower baths on each side at the eastern end. These premises, which will be under the control of a care taker quartered at the western end, will involve the removal of the existing grand stand. The construction will be of brick on stone foundations, but the upper portion of the walls will be roughcast.
