  • 30 Oct 1919, Mr. Samuel Heap to Miss Irene Whittle.
    The marriage of Mr. Samuel R. B J Heap, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Heap, of Wavertree, Liverpool, England, to Miss Irene F: A. Whittle (Rene), daughter of the late Mr. A. W. Whittle, and Mrs. Whittle, of Port Melbourne, was quietly celebrated at the Methodist Church, Graham-street, Port Melbourne, on Saturday, August 2, by the Rev. James Trathan. Mrs. Monkhouse offi-ciated at the organ. The church was beautifully decorated by friends of the bride. Owing to the recent death of the bride's father the wedding was quietly celebrated.
    The bride, who was given away by Mr. G. Miller, wore a charming frock of ivory crepe de chine and georgette, hand embroidered, trimmed with silk fringe and Maltese lace. The waist belt was daintily finished with, a cluster of georgette roses and orange blossom.
    A beautiful hand-worked tulle veil was worn, arranged over a coronet of orange blossom, and she carried a beau-tiful shower bouquet of choice white flowers and asparagus fern, tied with, tulle streamers, which was a gift of the bridegroom. As the bride left the church two horseshoes were placed on her arm.
    Mr. J. Harris was best man, and Miss Myrtle Whittle (sister of the bride) at-tended her as bridesmaid, and wore a dainty frock of mauve voile embroidered with silver; she carried a bouquet, of pale pink carnations and wore a gold wristlet watch, which, with the bouquet, were gifts of the bridegroom. Little Ethel Harris (niece of the bride) carried the bride's long veil, and wore a dainty little frock of hail-spot muslin, trimmed with hand-made lace and mauve ribbon; she carried a tall basket of pale pink carnations, which with a silver bag were gifts of the bridegroom.
    Wedding breakfast was served at Sar-gent's, the tables being beautifully decorated with yellow jonquils and asparagus fern. Mrs. Whittle (mother of the bride) received the guests in a becoming gown of black crepe de chine trimmed with black fringe, hat en suite and carried a posy of Japanese iris and fern. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a handsome wallet. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a set of ivory brushes.
    Mr. and Mrs. Heap left by motor for Healesville, where the honeymoon was spent. The bride travelled in a smart black tailored costume, with hat en suite.
    A highly successful concert and entertainment was given in connection with the Australian Imperial Boy Scouts at the Melbourne Town Hall on Tuesday October 21. Amongst those who con-tributed to the programme were—Misses Ella Hart, Elsy Ward, Mary Legrew, Messrs. Tom Greive, W. M. Wright and Xaves Rivers, the boy soprano.

  • 23 Oct 1924, OLD MELBOURNE FIRM. Growth of Henry Francis and Co. For 75 years Messrs. Henry Francis and Co., chemists and druggists, have been established in Bourke street, and the pre sent proprietors have now purchased the freehold of their premises at 280 Bourke street. The vendor was Mr. George Francis, the elder son of the late Mr. Henry Francis. The price has not been disclosed, but as the premises are situated in the busiest retail section of Melbourne the value per foot is very high. The frontage is 20ft 1½in., which is exactly the same as the frontage owned by the firm at 107 Collins street. The Bourke street business was opened in 1849 by Mr. S. J. T. Croad, who had been an assistant to the London Quaker firm of Allen and Hanbury. Mr. Henry Francis purchased it in 1860. The Collins street business was established in 1849 by Mr. Cade, who sold to Mr. Francis in 1886. The Bourke street pharmacy is now situated one door eastward of the original site but for many years it was conducted four doors to the westward of No. 280.
    Mr. Henry Francis was the son of an apothecary who practised at Woodbridge, Essex. His father's family had been associated with pharmacy for many generations, dating back to the reign of Charles II. His relatives are still actively connected with the wholesale drug trade in England. Mr. Francis arrived in Victoria in 1852, and after prospecting on various goldfields and trying his luck in other ventures, he purchased Mr. Croad's business. The elder son, Mr. George Francis, succeeded to the businesses on the death of his father in 1904; he had been manager for many months previously. The younger son, Mr. Tracey Francis, was trained as an assayer and later was severely wounded at the war. The purchase of the Collins street business followed the gradual drift of doctors from the west end of the city to the east end of Collins street.7
