  • 12 Jul 1889, COLLAPSE OF A BUILDING IN PRAHRAN. NARROW ESCAPE OF THE INMATES.
    Early yesterday morning a two-story building situated in 44 Chapel street, Prahran, and occupied by Mr. F. Johns as a painter's and paperhanger's shop and dwelling house, collapsed suddenly, and Mr. Johns and his family, who were in the dwelling at the time, had a very narrow escape for their lives. The collapse was caused by the excavations which had been made on the land immediately adjoining the building. This land is owned by a Mr. Delaney of St Kilda, who is having an arcade erected upon it, and the excavations were made for the purpose of putting in the necessary foundations. When the workmen ceased work on Wednesday they shored up the wall of Mr John's premises with two stays. Soon after midnight, however, the inmates of the house became alarmed by serious cracking noises which they heard, and by the falling of the plaster from the ceilings. As these noises continued they left the house, and took refuge in a store room in the yard at the rear of the building. Soon afterwards the front portion of the building came crashing down, and the place was a complete wreck. Next door is another shop occupied by Mr. C. A. Woess, a basketmaker, which also shows signs of collapse, but every precaution has been taken to prevent any further subsidence. [see image of shop]10
