c1929. Letterpress and colour process screen leaflet, four pages, 26.4 x 21.1cm (folded). Slight crinkles and foxing overall, some offsetting of text to back page.

Text includes “This property consisting of 639 acres is the most picturesque in the County of Cumberland… £1,000,000 to be made out of The Riviera by correct handling.… The completion of the North Shore Bridge [Sydney Harbour Bridge] in two years’ time (1931) will materially improve the opportunities… Stafford & Co. Ltd., 21-23 Wellington Street, City.” Commodore Heights, area which now forms the northern portion of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, passed through the hands of various owners. During the 1920s-30s several attempts were made to subdivide and develop the area, before it was resumed by the NSW Government just before WWII, and incorporated into the National Park.
