125th anniversary - J.Michelmore and Co., Mackay
One hundred and twenty-five years ago, John Alfred Michelmore, with backing from William Thomas Bagley and Edmund Dimmock created the longstanding wholesale merchants business, J.Michelmore and Co. Pty Ltd.
The fledging Mackay business soon developed into a major company with over 350 employees, 16 warehouses and 4 hotels by the time of their 75th anniversary in 1966.
SLQ recently digitised a small 4 page pamphlet, J. Michelmore & Co. Pty. Ltd. : 75th anniversary, 1891 -1966, which provides a brief overview of the company as well as photographs of premises and personalities. This pamphlet can be viewed via our One Search catalogue.
