From The Irwin Index newspaper, Saturday 18 June 1927:
Innering Post Office
"For some months past Innering Estate has been without a post and telegraph office, but now this sad state of affairs has been remedied. The telephone exchange, previously located at the home of Cumming Bros., has now been taken over by Mr. and Mrs. George Salter, who intend to run it on strictly departmental lines. The settlers of Innering are extremely fortunate at having these popular people as post and telegraph custodians. A telephone exchange is very much of a tie, as is generally recognised, but Mr. and Mrs. Salter rather than see the telephonic telegraphic facilities lost to the district gave the exchange a home. This may not be generally known so the "Index" takes this opportunity of informing interested readers that telegrams and telephone calls may now be taken direct to Inering."
