Administrative /‚Äč Biographical history

The Waterways Association was set up following the report of the Royal Commission into Inland Waterways in 1906. Its function was to implement the recommendations of the Royal Commission. However the cost of the schemes and the outbreak of war in 1914 meant that none of the recommendations were implemented, and in 1922 the Waterways Association ceased to operate.
