M. Matheson commented

Labour Hero’s House to be demolished?

I’m surprised that the three houses on Livingstone Road will be turned to rubble.

1. Especially because that the previous report judged them to be of significance.

2. Especially that any capable architect could incorporate them to give a sensible human scale to the streetscape.

3. AND especially as I‘m given to understand that Mr John Rowland Dacey, an Australian Labour stalwart lived here. He was a State Treasurer and a ‘Hero to the Working Class’.

He was sufficiently important to have a complete suburb named for him yet those who are blind to our heritage will destroy his house. Yes?
