Thanks for posting that wonderful old faded sign "Stationer & Printer' in the Tramways Building shop front. The business was owned by my husband's 2x great grandfather, John Collins, 1849-1911. He operated the shop there from 1902 until his tragic death in 1911, and it appears one of his sons continued there until about 1919, when the business disappears from the directories.
John Collins had previously been in partnership with Francis Gregory Dunn and Thomas Carter, as "Dunn, Carter and Collins" as early as 1871, when they had a store in Smith St, Collingwood in "The Arcade"
Does anyone know where this arcade might have been ?
Carter left the business in Jun 1876. Dunn and Collins continued on, also having a shop on the corner of Bourke and Elizabeth Streets, diagonally opposite the GPO. I believe they were there until about 1885. Kozminsky jewelers were on that site shortly thereafter.
