The Griffins Win

Arthur Branscombe Wood (1837–?)

Entry 54
Tooranie, Moulamein, New South Wales

Wood was a surveyor who worked for the NSW Department of Lands in 1890 and 1896.

This plan is a glorious composition of octagons and circles, with the centres of the octagons serving as sites for major buildings or groups of structures. The major north–south axis of the city extends through Camp Hill, where a long cross-axis leads east and west to other circles and octagons. The plan also provides for an underground railway.
