Recognise this antique-looking shop in Mollison St, Malmsbury?
While the occupants may have changed many times over the last 139 years, the building looks much the same.
It was built in 1882 as two separate shops for Robert Hunter. At the time this photograph was taken (about 1904) shoemaker Edward Stone (far left) was in the left-hand shop and the right-hand side was a bakery.
Today the building houses Rathdowne Antiques.
