Notes / History The headline on this sandwich board shows how local government was changing at the turn of the twentieth century.

By 1904 the population on the outskirts of MItcham had grown to the point where new residents could attend council meetings, demand better respresentation and succesfully oust long-serving councillors, From this point onwards electioneering became a serious business.
