Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Centenary Centre Print Page
Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Centenary Centre was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. The building was formerly the Lane Cove Memorial School of Arts Hall.
Dame Margaret Davidson, who opened at Lane Cove yesterday afternoon, in the absence of the Governor, a school of arts, stated that the building was erected in memory of the soldiers who had volunteered and given their lives lor their country. His Excellency would, she said, have been present but for indisposition. He was a disappointed man. The Tramway Band was present, and there was also a representative gathering from the Willoughby Council and Progress Associations.
