E. Bell, Bootmaker, Elder St, Lambton, NSW, 14th April, [n.d.]

This image was scanned from the original glass negative taken by Ralph Snowball. It is part of the Norm Barney Photographic Collection, held by Cultural Collections at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

The site has had many lives, from a hairdresser and tobacconist in the 1900s, to a general grocer and public lecture hall, to Lambton Fridge and Global Property Real Estate.
