Part Coloured Housing Program Policy


National Archives of Australia Part Coloured Housing Policy Darwin F1 1955/1119 Copyright P J Mackett 2012 10.11.1955 Welfare Officer to Director of Welfare Housing for Mr P Talbot Mr and Mrs Talbot and child live with Mr Talbot's parents at Parap Camp, who occupy a Sidney Williams 60 x 20 hut, and there are as many as twenty living in the house at times. Last week the Housing Officer offered Mr Talbot temporary accomodation at Winnellie in one of the large buildings (100 x 40 approx). The building itself has no facilities such as lighting, water, etc. Rather than be cooped up with his family, Mr Talbot accepted the offer, and moved out last Sunday, 6th November 1955. 18.11.1955 Welfare Branch to Acting Government Secretary Allocation of a home to a part-coloured family.

Mr Jack McGuinness - a widower at present living in a very sub-standard house in Section 555, Mitchell Street. His daughter, who has two children, housekeeps for him and the rest of the family not yet married. He has been employed by the Department of Works for many, many years, is the President of the Half-Caste Association and is a very highly respected member of the Darwin Community, both white and coloured. Mr Tim Angeles - has been employed by the Municipal Section for many years as a ganger and has a large family of whom, at the present time, four or five are living at home. He has a hut in the Parap area which is a credit to any family. His children are well dressed and well behaved, and he, also, is a prominent and respected member of the Half-Caste Community. Mr J W Solomon - employed by the Department of Works and occupies half a hut at Parap. I am not sure of the size of his family, but I think he has two children. The house is well kept and the surroundings tidy. He is not regarded as key industrial personnel by the Department of Works , and although he has been employed there for some seven or eight years, he has not been allocated an industrial residence. In fact, no coloured people have been allocated these houses by that Department. 29.12.1955 Welfare Officer to Director of Welfare Reports Re Housing - J McGuinness, T Angeles, J Solomon J McGuiness - The present family who now resides with him are, his mother, his four children and a granddaughter.
