From the text: "This property consisting of 639 acres is the most picturesque in the County of Cumberland… £1,000,000 to be made out of The Riviera by correct handling.… The completion of the North Shore Bridge [Sydney Harbour Bridge] in two years’ time (1931) will materially improve the opportunities…"
From the Dictionary of Sydney: "The area which now forms the northern portion of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, passed through the hands of various owners. During the 1920s-30s several attempts were made to subdivide and develop the area, before it was resumed by the NSW Government just before WWII, and incorporated into the National Park."
