    • A LONG SERVING CHAIRMAN OF THE DISTRICT OF WALKERVILLE: 1903-1910 - J T MELLOR
      James Taylor Mellor was a Councillor for the Medindie ward in 1900. He was elected as Chairman of the District of Walkerville in 1903 and served for seven years.
      During his time on Council Mr Mellor was elected as a member of the Municipal Tramways Trust in 1907 representing suburban district councils; an office he held for a number of years. It was during his final term of office as chairman that Mr Mellor had the honour of driving the first electric tramcar on the Walkerville route on an experimental run on Saturday night 3rd April 1909. The electric tram service eventually replaced the horse-drawn cars. He was also for a time Chairman of the
      Local Government Association.
      Mr Mellor had lost his seat as Chairman as a result of an overwhelming opposition from Medindie ratepayers who were against Council purchasing the Recreation Ground (which included the Sports Oval and Bowling grounds). He was replaced by Edward van Senden in 1910 but remained on Council until he died in 1914.
      He was born to a well-known pioneering family in 1865 and was the only surviving son of Thomas Fox Mellor. Upon completion of a three year scholarship at Prince Alfred College he became articled to W & T Pope, solicitors of Adelaide, and was admitted to practice at the Bar of the Supreme Court in 1887. The following year he took his LL.B degree at the University of Adelaide and practised his profession at Eagle Chambers in King William Street, Adelaide. Mr Mellor died at his
      home in Avenel Gardens Rd, Medindie in April 1914. The Housing Trust flats in James Street, Gilberton were named after
      him…….
