Cameo Cafe, Tenterfield ~1939

This photo sits on the counter of the Cameo café, now a shrine to Elvis, and the current owner says the people featured are ‘mostly’ Critharys. But the suited bloke behind the counter looks suspiciously like George Nick Combes, dating the photo at ~1937 or earlier. George established or acquired the Cameo sometime after rebuilding his Paragon café, further south on Rouse Street, in 1925.

Harry John Crithary initially landed in the early 1920s and went to work for his cousins, ...

Crethar's Cafe Lismore ~1935

Angelo Victor Crethar arrived from Ballina in 1923 and acquired the ‘Busy Bee Café’ of George Patrinos in Woodlark Street, revamping it into ‘Crethar’s Sundae Shop’ and trading as Crethar Bros in silent partnership with his brother Menas, who turned up from Tamworth in about 1925.
In 1926 Angelo also acquired a tearoom business in Molesworth Street, one shop up from Theo George Fardouly’s ‘Olympia Café’. Here he established another Sundae shop which became the ‘New Sundae ...

Bingara's Roxy Theatre - Officially re-opened

Back to the flicks after a 36-year intermission.

Mark Coultan.

Sydney Morning Herald. Monday, May 31, 2004. page 3.

The opening of Bingara's Roxy Theatre in the Depression years must have seemed a symbol of a great future for the small town in north-western NSW. In fact, it was a folly - a glorious one, but one nevertheless doomed to failure.

Now the Roxy has reopened, and the theatre is again the hope of the town.

Molong Cafe

Original Molong Cafe of Capitan-Minas Poulos (Tzortzopoulos), and other Kytherian owners.

A symbol of the decline of Kytherian and Hellenic influence in the retail trade - central western New South Wales.

The shop is not trading - with newspapers lining the window.

I am certain that many persons in Australia have many photographs of this shop from the 1920's onwards, when it was a thriving cafe, with a great reputation, which spread well beyond the borders ...

Andronicus Olympia cafe at Allora

Andronicus Olympia cafe at Allora

Does anyone know the history of the Andronicus's who owned the Olympia Cafe?


About Allora:

A quiet service centre in the Darling Downs.
161 km south-west of Brisbane, 58 km from Toowoomba and 467 m above sea level, Allora is known as the 'best little town on the Downs'. Its name is probably a corruption of the Aboriginal word 'gnallorah' meaning 'swampy place'. If it is accurate translation it would be ...

Margies Candies - Chicago, USA - Poulos's

Margies Candies

Margie’s Candies ice cream parlor, 1960 N. Western Ave, was founded in the 1920s by Greek immigrant Peter George Poulos.

It later expanded to include chocolate and other sweets which it manufactures on behalf of other companies. From the beginning, Margie’s candy, ice cream, and fudge sauce have been homemade.

It was the homemade fudge sauce, poured over 18 percent butterfat ice cream, that attracted the Beatles after their concert ...

Murgon ~1929

My wife, a true-blue Murgon girl, has this and the following Murgon photos in her inherited collection. She reckons Danny Vanarey was the first to bring Greek cooking to Murgon in 1921 when he took up one of the new suite of shops built by a bloke named Carrodus (is this Greek?). A couple of years later George Black arrived to give him a few pointers, taking over the business in 1927 when Danny decided his talents lay as a draper in the adjacent shop.
In 1932 they went into partnership to ...
