DEDICATED


TO THOSE

GENEROUS AND WHOLE-HEARTED

HELPERS

who have so splendidly aided us in all our efforts to improve The Army’s properties in the Australian Commonwealth


FOREWORD BY THE COMMISSIONER

This book contains a pictorial and brief review of what has been generally described as a unique epoch in the development of The Salvation Army property in Australia.

For forty years our Work for God and the people has been carried on with marked success. Owing, however, to various circumstances, the buildings held by The Army prior to 1909 were not entirely suitable or adequate either for our increasing Corps Work, with its growing opportunity among the young, or our rapidly developing Social and Rescue Operations. Because of this, our Officers were labouring under a heavy handicap.

In addition to this, the growth of suburbs and towns generally has necessitated extensions of our Work, and additional buildings.

Bv the blessing of Almighty God, Whose servants we are, a great change has been effected during the period under review in these pages. We would here record our manifold thanks to God, as well as to the many friends who have so heartily and so bountifully aided us in securing this grand improvement.

To have erected or purchased 426 buildings in twelve years, and to have actually raised two-thirds of the cost, will ever remain in our minds as a testimony, both of marked Divine assistance, and also of splendid enthusiasm on the part of many Officers, Soldiers and Friends.

Such greatly improved facilities have influenced the extension of our Work considerably. Certain sections have advanced over 20 per cent., arid in some important departments the advance has been over 100 per cent.

To God be all the glorv!

JAMES HAY,

Commissioner.

AUSTRALIA GREETS THE GENERAL

The General received a tumultuous reception from all classes on the occasion of his long anticipated visit to Australia in 1920. This photograph represents that portion of the crowd immediately surrounding the car on his arrival in Melbourne.

IN COMMAND OF AUSTRALIA


(vacant land) for future development.


For the first two years New Zealand was also included in the Australasian Territory, but buildings erected in New Zealand are not shown here.

1 he inauguration of two separate territories in the Commonwealth took place on Jan. !, 1921, the Commissioner remaining, for the time being, in charge of both.

Commissioner Hay has been an Officer for nearly 39 years, and during the past 12 years has had the satisfaction of seeing great expansion in every branch of Salvation Army work throughout Australia.


SOUTHERN AND EASTERN TERRITORIES

COMMISSIONER JAMES HAY, O.B.E.

The buildings shown in this book were built or acquired during the term of Commissioner Hay’s leadership in Australia.

The Commissioner has been in command of The Army in Australia from 1909 to 1921, a period of 12 years—the longest term of any Territorial Commander in this continent.

During that time he has personally opened 41 I new buildings, and has, in addition, purchased 150 sites

TWELVE YEARS AT A GLANCE

In July, 1Q2I, The Army in Australia has 692 Properties, the book value of

which stands at ...... ...... ...    ...    ......... ...    £1,011,813

The cost of all Properties secured in the 26 years preceding September, 1909, was £271,776 An increase of £740,037 is thus shown for the 12 years under review.

The mortgages on the above at July, 1921, are £245,908 only—a proportion probably not excelled in any Army Territory throughout the world.

426 new Buildings have been erected during Commissioner Hay’s term, and 32 of those previously existing have been remodelled. A total of £87,547 has also been spent in repairing older buildings.

91 additional Quarters for Officers have been provided.

The seating capacity of our Public Halls is now 116.588 persons, an increase of 42,431. The new Buildings for Corps purposes include 143 Adults’ Halls, 65 Young People’s Halls, and 87 Primary Buildings.

Of our 68 Institutions 40 have been provided during the past 12 years. Many of the remainder have been modernised. Others have had extensive additions. It should be noted that an Institution which counts as one in the above total may comprise 8 or 10 substantial and self-contained Buildings, and in many cases our Institutions stand in grounds several acres in extent. The Sydney People’s Palace, which also counts as one, contains 731 rooms.

7741 persons are housed under The Army’s roof nightly. This represents an increase on the 1909 figures of 4525.

TERRITORIAL HEADQUARTERS FOR SOUTHERN AUSTRALIA, MELBOURNE, Vic.

No pictorial record of The Army in Australia would be complete without this historic building, which for 26 years was the National Headquarters for the Commonwealth, and also for many years for New Zealand.

It occupies a prominent position at the top of Bourke Street, near Federal Parliament House, and its value has greatly increased since it was acquired in 1894.

The foresight and wisdom of those who, in the earlier days of the Movement, were responsible for making this purchase is recognised with gratitude.

In addition to office accommodation, there are two public halls.

How You May Help The Army to Secure Suitable
Buildings for Its Work

While a great deal has been accomplished in these twelve years, much more remains to be done. 1 he Army lias proved itself to be a necessity to this growing country, and its rapid expansion calls for increased facilities. You may help us—

1.    By a gift either of cash, bonds, or properly of some kind, making it possible for us to erect a small Hall, a building for the Children's Work, or a new Institution to further any one of our manifold works of mercy. We should be glad to permanently associate the name of the donor with a place so provided.

2.    A substantial donation would assist us in one or other of the many schemes continually before us for the above objects, or would enable us to improve some existing building.

3.    Perhaps you might advance us money either as a deposit in our Property Funds, or on mortgage. We would pay reasonable interest on the same.

4.    You could, in your Will, leave us funds for additions to any existing Institution for any specific purpose you might desire.

In all such benefactions you would have the satisfaction of helping work that has for its object the good of man; and also the assistance of the young, and which is done for the glory of God.

Will you consider what you can do, and write to the Commissioner, at 69 Bourke Street, Melbourne; or 69 Goulburn Street, Sydney?

MRS. COMMISSIONER HAY


Mrs. Hay has ever stood nobly by the Commissioner’s side in both public work and effort behind the scenes.

Many of these buildings have been used as aids to Mrs. Hay’s schemes for helping the needy and distressed.

The Commissioner’s wife has also taken a very active part in Prison Visitation, and many men have gone to the Prison-Gate Plomes on her advice, and have afterwards become useful citizens.

The Melbourne Aged Women’s Retreat and other Buildings have been opened by Mrs. Hay.

SITES PURCHASED FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT

During the twelve years under review, a great deal of vacant land has been acquired in anticipation of the erection of buildings, and the commencement of our evangelistic work in new centres.

In many cases such foresight has resulted in The Army Hall being situated in a prominent and central location, purchased years before at a reasonable figure. In view of the tremendems rise in value in many rapidly growing centres, this policy has resulted in substantial savings, and in consequence more new openings have been made possible.

Commissioner May has personally chosen the land in hundreds of cases, and in many instances has had the great satisfaction of seeing flourishing Corps economically established on land so purchased.

At most of our larger Social Institutions also, areas of land are held for the erection of new sections later. This applies particularly to “ Brightside ” Sanitaria (Vic.), Camberwell Aged Women’s Retreat (Vic.), the Bexley Boys’ Home (N.S.W.), and many others. The scheme for the development at Box Hill, a typical case, is shown on page 21. At Grecnsborough (Vic.), we have a property of eighteen acres for Children’s Work.

The Perth location, in the heart of the city, is shown on page 50.
