Messrs J. J. Edstein and Sons, of Taree. expect this week to have completed the memorial gates being erected at Taree Park to commemorate the memory of the late Mr. A. A. Maloney. who was a dentist in this town for many years and passed away a couple of years ago. The gates were the outcome of a public movement, followed by subscriptions. The gates consist of four reinforced piers, cement rendered and blocked off in stone courses.

The two main piers stand 7ft. 6in. high, on either side of the main entrance gate, and the two flanking piers are each 6ft. 6in high. The two main piers will be surmounted by electric light standard fittings, with a ball globe on the top. The gates are of hand-made wrought iron, the vehicular entrance being 9ft. wide, while the pedestrian entrances on either side are each 3ft. 6in. wide. On the two main piers, near the top, is the inscription — one "A. A. Maloney" and on the other "Memorial."
