BONDI’S OLDEST SHOP CLOSES
Probably the oldest shop in Bondi has closed (or at least appears to be closed).
It was the Phoenix Dry Cleaners in Gould Street, and no one can remember when it opened – but it was certainly in business in the late 1940s, and probably before.
A long-time resident who grew up in nearby Oakley Road drove past it this week, and it was empty and boarded up. It made no concessions to modernity, and had the same equipment it had over half a century ago.
I f any one knows more about this, The Bondi Daily would like to hear from you. (You can tweet us below or email us at email@example.com , Tweet us at #thebondidaily or drop us a line at The Bondi Daily PO box 1852 Strawberry Hills 2012.)
Let’s hope this Phoenix rises again.
