Brian Leckey. What do you think have been the greatest changes in Mosman in the long time that you’ve been here?

Betty Alexander. Well for the worst, the traffic. It has completely ruined Mosman. When we first came to Mosman many years ago we were very impressed with the old people and the old dogs that used to wander across from Spit Junction. You could go zigzag, cross-ways – it didn’t matter, you could have a little chat in the middle of the road, and it was very pleasant. Nobody hurried. Speed had never been heard of in Mosman. Its layout lent itself to a garden suburb, which it isn’t now.
