Reference File - Kew, City of - Amalgamation, 1994

From the Collection of Kew Historical Society Inc 1 Civic Drive Kew Victoria

The City of Kew was amalgamated into the City of Boroondara in 1994. The new city comprised the former Cities of Hawthorn, Kew and Camberwell. This archive file contains primary sources and publications relating to the amalgamation. The earliest item in the file is a newspaper article/clipping from the Eastern Standard (1986) recording a request from Hawthorn Council to Kew Council to consider amalgamating. The file also includes other newspaper articles/cuttings (some undated) reporting on opposition to the amalgamation. An interesting item in the file is a photocopy of a coloured digital photograph of the members of the last Kew Council. [The original still has to be discovered]. The file also contains a commemorative edition of Kewriosity [magazine] (1994), which lists all the chairmen and mayors of Kew (1861-1994) and three copies of the City of Kew Final Commemorative Council Meetingb14 June 1994.
