Place Details



This building was constructed circa 1889 as a single shop and residence and was run by owners Daw and Slack as a butcher’s shop. In 1918 it became a State Butcher’s under the Labor Government’s scheme to stabilise prices and encourage fair competition through the acquisition of state-owned enterprises and the shop was leased by the government until the end of 1926. In the late 1930s, the shop underwent major renovations which included the addition of three shops on the ground floor and flats on the second floor. It was also redesigned in the Interwar Art Deco style.
