The Provincial Government Buildings were put up by instalments. The first, that portion extending from the stone building with the wooden tower and afterwards the Northern portion. The Council chamber was built later. Fedk. Jenkins was the builder of the first portion, and Forgan of the stone building. The trees were planted and the ground levelled between 58-59 when so many immigrants were on hand. There was a pretty little foot bridge for many years over Gloucester St and also an old foot bridge at the Worcester St. Above that, no a few years later, the Gov. bought the block from the new Supreme Court to the Art Gallery, upon the Terrace frontage of which there were some houses and shops, Smith & Jones, plumbers &c. all bought out at good prices.

Mr Forgan senr.
