  • 9 Nov 1927, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24. A Half past Two O'Clock. AUCTION SALE. SCOTTS HOTEL MELBOURNE.
    MORTGAGEE'S SALE Of Picturesquely Situated Estate of 694 Acres, Known as LOUISVILLE, On the Gembrook Road Upper Beaconsfield, 5 Miles from Emerald Railway Station.
    Frank T Boileau and Co , stock and station agents (F J Boileau auctioneer) Chancery House (ground floor offices), 440 Little Collins street, Melbourne, and S LOCKHART, stock and station agent, Sea Lake, will SELL, under instructions from the mortgagees, that splendidly situated property known as LOUISVILLE on the Gembrook road, Upper Beaconsfield, formerly the country home of the late Dr L. L. Smith being all those pieces of land containing 694 acres 9 perches or thereabouts being Crown Allotments 70, 70a, 70b, 70c, 70d, 71, ond 71a and part of Crown Allotment 73 and in the surface and down to a depth of 50ft below the surface of Crown Allotment 70e, Section C, parish of Gembrook county of Mornington, and being the whole of the land more particularly delineated and described in Certificate of Title, Volume 4619, Folio 923,715, together with a well-built residence of six main rooms, in very fair repair and various outbuildings. A great deal of money has been spent on this estate, but it has been allowed to go back. Judiciously handled, and money carefully spent on the property, it could easily be brought back to its original state when occupied by the late Dr Smith. The situation is beautiful ; there is, possibly, none better in this favourite district. The roads to the property are now undergoing repairs, and will soon be perfect thus allowing motorists a splendid drive in undoubtedly one of the most glorious spots in the State. About 100 acres have been cleared, balance heavily timbered, but good orchard country when cleared.
    N.B. -At the price for which the property will be sold a good investment awaits the right man and many and varied are the opportunities offered by a proposition such as this.
    Solicitors, Messrs Arthur Phillips, Pearce, and Just, 60 Queen street Melbourne.
    FRANK T BOILEAU and Co Stock and Station Agents Chancery House, 440 Little Collins street (ground floor offices) Melbourne (Telephone Cent 239S) and S LOCKHART, Stock and Station Agent, Sea Lake (auctioneers in conjunction).7

  • 29 Aug 1929, Weddings. RICHARDSON — THOMPSON. Scots Church, Collins-street, Melbourne, was the setting for a quiet but pretty wedding on Wednesday, August 7, when Rhoda Millicent Evelyn, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Thompson, “St. Germains,’’ Undera, was married to Eric, only son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Walker Richardson, of “Dene Cliff,” Warburton (late of “Bayview” Cowes, Phillip Island). The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. McIlroy, of Mooroopna. The petite bride looked charming in an ensemble suit of slate grey, the straight fur collared coat covering a smart frock of wool crepe de chine and was worn with a grey felt hat relieved by a diamente buckle. Miss Joan Davis, of St. Kilda, was the bride’s only attendant. She wore a dainty draped frock of almond green crepe de chene, and a matching bangkok straw hat. Her small posy of pink peach blossom and lillies of the valley corresponded with the shoulder spray worn by the bride. Mr. Frank MacLean, of Elsternwick, was best man. Later Mr. and Mrs. Thompson entertained near relatives and a few intimate friends at luncheon at the Hotel Federal, Collins Street. The honeymoon was spent in South Australia.11
