Milk bars at 111 and 107 - Peter's Story

My father-in-law owned two businesses in Hoddle St at #111 between 1955 & 1960, and at #107 between 1960 and January 1971. Both were milk bars – the second one also sold papers, groceries, fruit and vegies.

My wife, at age 8 or 9, would have picnics with her dog on the plantation in the middle of the road, directly outside the shop.

These are photos of the exterior of 111 Hoddle St in 1955 and inside with proprietors Bob and Ivy Smithwick.
