Historic Cottage In Grave Danger
MELBOURNE, Saturday.— Gover- nor Latrobe's cottage, Mel bourne's first Government House, is in danger of falling to pieces. Recent thunderstorms damaged
the timber structure, which is weak ened by senile decay m its ninety fifth year. The rain has severely .damaged the ceiling of the old banqueting halL and contractors fear that another heavy storm might send the tall brick chimney crashing down, and bring the his toric cottage in ruins to the ground. Because of the delicate state of the framework and chimney repairs would be difficult and extremely costly. The damaged ceiling, how ever, will be repaired at a cost of about £100.
