(Alderman) Frederick Passau writes to the Manly Daily, 31 January 1910, that a stone hatchet, evidently Aboriginal, has been found in a trench at the intersection of Ashburner Street and East Esplanade Manly, on 25 January 1910. Made of Nepean boulder, “no similar stone exists in the vicinity”. (Manly Council 1910, Official Jubilee Souvenir, p. 26)
