An extensive radial railway network spread into the countryside from the late s. Construction started on further major public buildings in the s and s, such as the Supreme CourtGovernment Houseand the Queen Victoria Market. The central city filled up with shops and offices, workshops, and warehouses.


Large banks and hotels faced the main streets, with fine townhouses in the east end of Collins Street, contrasting with tiny cottages down laneways within the blocks. Land boom and bust[ edit ] Lithograph of the World Heritage -listed Royal Exhibition Buildingbuilt to host the Melbourne International Exhibition of The s was a decade of extraordinary growth, when consumer confidence, easy access to credit, and steep increases in land prices led to an enormous amount of construction.

During this 'land boom', Melbourne reputedly became the richest city in the world, [15] and the largest after London in the British Empire. In a telephone exchange was established and in the same year the foundations of St Paul'swere laid; in electric light was installed in the Eastern Market, and in the following year a generating station capable of supplying 2, incandescent lamps was in operation.

A brash boosterism that had typified Melbourne during this time ended in the early s with a severe economic depression, sending the local finance and property industries into a period of chaos [47] [50] during which 16 small "land banks" and building societies collapsed, and limited companies went into liquidation. The Melbourne financial crisis was a contributing factor in the Australian economic depression of the s and the Australian banking crisis of The effects of the depression on the city were profound, with virtually no new construction until the late s.

At the time of Australia's federation on 1 JanuaryMelbourne became the seat of government of the federation. The first federal parliament was convened on 9 May in the Royal Exhibition Building, subsequently moving to the Victorian Parliament House where it was located untilwhen it was moved to Canberra. The Governor-General of Australia resided at Government House in Melbourne until and many major national institutions remained in Melbourne well into the twentieth century.

Suburban expansion then intensified, served by new indoor malls beginning with Chadstone Shopping Centre. Many of the larger suburban mansions from the boom era were also either demolished or subdivided.

To counter the trend towards low-density suburban residential growth, the government began a series of controversial public housing projects in the inner city by the Housing Commission of Victoriawhich resulted in demolition of many neighbourhoods and a proliferation of high-rise towers.

The Bolte government sought to rapidly accelerate the modernisation of Melbourne. Major road projects including the remodelling of St Kilda Junctionthe widening of Hoddle Street and then the extensive Melbourne Transportation Plan changed the face of the city into a car-dominated environment.

Nauru 's then booming economy resulted in several ambitious investments in Melbourne, such as Nauru House. Inthe newly elected Kennett government began a campaign to revive the economy with an aggressive development campaign of public works coupled with the promotion of the city as a tourist destination with a focus on major events and sports tourism.

Other strategies included the privatisation of some of Melbourne's services, including power and public transport, and a reduction in funding to public services such as health, education and public transport infrastructure. There has been substantial international investment in the city's industries and property market.

Major inner-city urban renewal has occurred in areas such as SouthbankPort MelbourneMelbourne Docklands and more recently, South Wharf. According to the Australian Bureau of StatisticsMelbourne sustained the highest population increase and economic growth rate of any Australian capital city in the three years ended June Fromthe growth of the city extended into "green wedges" and beyond the city's urban growth boundary.

Predictions of the city's population reaching 5 million people pushed the state government to review the growth boundary in as part of its Melbourne Five Million strategy. To excuse a man rather than blame him brings better results, for many mistakes flagrant as they seem to an onlooker, are excusable. If they be frequently repeated a serious remonstrance may be necessary, but always at the right time.

Asked as to what part of the organisation takes most watching during a match he unhesitatingly says "the ruck".

It can never be watched too closely. In what are considered easy matches followers who have been long at the game are a bit inclined to loaf and let the others help them to the ball, but you have only to suggest a change, and the follower will perhaps ask for a few minutes more of it and then you'll see what he can do. In a crisis experience nearly always tells, and the crack follower who may be content to go for an exhibition mark now and again against St.

Kilda is a worker heart and soul when he meets Melbourne or Fitzroy. He is a goal-kicker first, but put him where you may and he is as good as the best men there. In fact I consider him the best footballer I've ever seen, and he can beat in any of our men in their own places. But Thurgood is not the beginning and end of Essendon's success.

Many good judges consider our ruck interior to several others playing, but I wouldn't exchange it for the best of them—good even as Melbourne's s ruck is admitted to be. Our ruck may not show to the same advantage with the play very close, still they will pretty well hold their own, and as soon as it opens a bit watch them then. Our defence, too, is very even and consistent, and it is a great thing to have a heavy dasher like Officer close in to the posts.

At times he may get little to do, when—as against Melbourne—the half -back line stops most of it, but when he has to work he's a fine defender. Nor would I swap centre-lines with any club. We have two great followers in Forbes and Watson, and the Adelaide people were delighted with them.

Watson had been off for some time, but as soon as he stripped in Adelaide he said, "I feel like myself again,' and he proved it. For place-men who are at once fast, and reliable, you will find it difficult to beat such a pair as George Stuckey and Barney Grecian. The South Australia wing men couldn't touch Grecian. I think, is the fact that so many of our men have been years at the game, and always play best when they know what's wanted from them—and that is generally shown at halftime.

Had North Melbourne met us with Melbourne's reputation there would have been no draw.

We play as teams, they as individuals. You have men constantly wanting to get hold of the ball and run with it from one end of the field to the other. They play much the same game as young Wardill did against us—risky, very fine to look at, but not always of benefit to the side. That's rather a delicate question, but the team that has puzzled me more than any other is Geelong.

From what I have seen of them, I think they have a splendid lot of players, but they either don't train and practice properly, or they won't pull together, for with the men they have they should have been much nearer the top. The youngest of the seniors, Collingwood, seems to be coming along nicely, and they played a really good game against Essendon. Football is a game, why make it a battle? I think science and skill come in just in the same proportion that roughness goes out.

No rule can, in my opinion, be too harsh in checking one player going for another spitefully. Bouncing the ball in the centre has been a great improvement to the game, and I decidedly don't believe in behinds. I think it would be better to abolish them altogether.
