Paul Maggs home on Gympie Road
Maggs family home was a landmark on Gympie Road, Kedron. It stood beside the road and the large spreading verandas anchored to the large white concrete pillars presented an imposing sight to the passing traffic.
Beside the house was a two rink lawn bowling green where the Maggs family and friends played bowls. Paul Maggs was a longtime player and was Patron of the Windsor Bowls Club.
Paul Maggs was a tanner and had his Bristol tannery was at the eastern end of Kedron Street only a short distance from the house. It was built on the banks of the small creek that flowed beside Gallagher's tannery on the opposite side of Gympie Road.
This small area of Kedron housed the tanneries of Stephen Pill and James Slaney.
The Plans of Glenora
Although Glenora was a stately home in Kedron it was like the homes of other tannery owners, it was near the tannery. Probably far enough away to avoid the smell but close enough to keep an eye on production at the tannery.
Car Sales Yard
Gympie Road had about 22 car sales yards between Rode Road and Kedron Brook, but some have been resumed for the new Bus Freeway.
Estate Agents look on the car sales yards as a sort of short term business in that they exist until someone buys them to build more permanent structures, usually with several floors.
