Houses For Air Department. This view shows a section of the housing block at present under construction at the western end of Woodbourne. It comprises 23 houses, eight of which have been completed and occupied. The others are well advanced and will be occupied as they are finished. The building work is being carried out by three local contractors under the supervision of the Ministry of Works Housing Division. The houses are being built on behalf of the Air Department and the block is the final one in a comprehensive building scheme which was started some years ago.
