From on Thursday, 29 July, 2010

Dear Elizabeth,
I am a resident at 1-3 Dods Street Brunswick which was built by Andrew Gray Staley and his uncle Daniel Staley in 1928. I am attempting a short history of the building to display in our foyer.
I came across your web site which seems to be the same Staley family. Would you be able to assist me with any information regarding these Staleys or the building?
I do know that the foundation stone was laid by the then Prime Minister James Scullin although no one seems to know where it is. The building is now a block of apartments (approximately 90) and is home to over 200 people. It is a beautiful building and I often think about its origins. Many people always ask about its beginnings so it would be wonderful to have a display which is self explanatory.
I look forward to hearing from you. Margaret
