(Mentioned) Village Bell2Jan 1980 WITH LOVERIDGE’S GOING, AN ERA PASSES
David Russell, whose untimely death is reported elsewhere, worked most of his life with the Berwick owned business of Loveridge's, and succeeded his father as Manager of the B. U. store on Bill’s retirement shortly after his 70th birthday.
Bill Russell recalls the scene at Charing Cross around the outbreak of World War 1:
The Milk Bar (presently leased by Tom Van der Dolder, previously by Allens and Cooks, and owned retrospectively by Beckwith, Stuckett, Pingo, Colles and Mrs G. Thompson) was a confectionery and fruitmongery conducted by Horner and Funnell. Immediately adjacent (now Mick O’Riley and Anne McKay's art/craft enterprise) was a grocery conducted by Bill Berglund, whose father created “The Towers” on the road after his own name.
Across Halford Road was Tom “Sport” Brady’s hire coach shed (now still exhibiting well-weathered petroleum advertisements). A former garage owner in Melbourne, Tom retired to B. U. and lived in a small in-built section of the building which was formerly the co-operative fruit packing shed at Beaconsfield railway station. Across the Emerald Road, now Jack Stephen’s butcher's shop, was “Boss” Shorthouse’s headquarters for a Royal Mail and passenger horse coach/bus service. (Later Bill Berglund’s grocery moved to this site).
Alongside it, now Loveridges, was John Nathan’s general store. (Nathan’s first store opposite the Cenotaph, now Cr Keith Ewenson’s, was burnt down. He set up next door to the Salisbury Road Hall, then moved to the Loveridge’s site in 1929. Here John Glissman had constructed the present building, employing some of the timber from the Village's first school.)
Bill Russell, who lived with his family in Berwick, came into Loveridge’s employment as counter hand and delivery man in the early 1930’s when Loveridges bought the business from Nathan.
Trading at that time continued to 10 pm. on Saturday nights to cater for the influx of weekend holiday-makers. Wednesdays were closed days. Bill slept in the store for a month then brought his family to rent "Rosemont" in A’Beckett Road (now Mrs Atkinson's).
When Bill Noblet managed Loveridge’s (succeeding Syd Dean), Bill Russell moved into the Berglund shop and cottage at the rear, and subsequently purchased it. When Mrs. Russell died about 18 years ago, the former grocery shop (then acting as a bed-sitting room) was leased to Jack Stephens. Prior to this Jack was a taxi cab operator in Emerald.
Among Bill Russell’s regular chores some 40 years ago was the delivery of 44 gallon drums of lime-sulphur to the many orchards, by horse and dray. Later it was in the comfort of a 13 model Ford motor truck.
Bill ultimately took over the management of Loveridge’s for 4 years, before son David was to give him a well earned rest. Like the publicity he received when phasing out of a long association with the store, Bill's mother Celia came very much into the limelight when she celebrated her 100th birthday at the Pine Grove Hotel.
These few lines have been penned to recall the family’s association with a district entity about to fade into the past.10
