Joe Dransfield, Mayor
[Circa 1875] See full details
One of Joseph Dransfield's first actions as mayor was to purchase Queen's Wharf and the surrounding land. However this led to allegations that he helped fellow councillors win many contracts for commercial waterfront activities. As a result Dransfield was ousted in 1873.
Dransfield Street in Vogeltown is named after the city's first mayor.
