The introduction to the article":

The Jubilee of Geelong: 1850 to 1900:

The Town of Geelong was settled immediately after Melbourne, and was incorporated on 12th October, 1849, by an Act of the New South Wales Parliament, 13 Victoria, No. 40.  In November of the same year Governor Latrobe appointed Mr Foster Fyans, the Stipendiary Magistrate, provisional Mayor; also four aldermen to appoint assessors and conduct elections.  The first elections for the Council were held in January, 1850, and the first Council meeting was held on the 9th February, 1850.  The 50th anniversary of the first meeting was the 9th February last, when the council, instead of the usual form of celebrations pursued on such occasions, voted three hundred pounds to the African war funds, and ordered to be prepared a photographic group of all the Mayors who had held office as a fitting memento of the event.
