But if our observer be public-spirited and humane, the spread of modern improvements will not greatly vex him. . He will sympathise with the efforts of the present generation of Italians to make Rome, Naples, and many another historic city the fit abiding-place of hopeful communities whose gaze is forward rather than backward. . 14 Melbourne’s municipal governance may well have been established in the British tradition,15 and it certainly felt the ripple effect of systematic urban reform programs in Great Britain from the 1830s,16 but it is clear that Melbourne’s municipal supervisors followed trends that transcended continents, hemispheres, and empires.

Harper toured Europe, the United States, and Canada, studying the technology and provision of lighting in principal cities. Noting the introduction of the metal filament lamp, which had significantly cut lighting costs and enabled advances in artistic illumination, Harper considered that the lighting of British provincial towns was inferior to Melbourne. Berlin was considered to be the best-lighted city, although most European cities were lit with electric arc lamps of the obsolete “open” type.

47 Early twentieth-century Melbourne was alarmed, for example, by the proportions of the expectoration nuisance, which first reared its head locally in August 1901. Children, it seems, were learning improper manners not only from intemperate and working-class men but from a broader male population (even an ex-mayor was seen spitting) who thought it “manly” to spit. The nuisance was exaggerated by growing awareness of the spread of contagious diseases, and Robert Koch’s theories on consumption were cited as evidence that spitting needed to be stamped out.
