Summary
  • [transcript of text]
  • Black and white photoprint of W. Tyner's shop in Albert Street, Windsor, selling chaff, grain, firewood and coal. Two drays are waiting outside.
  • Image published in 'City of Prahran jubilee history and illustrated handbook: South Yarra, Toorak, Malvern, etc', Melbourne: Periodicals Publishing Company, 1906 p.144. Notes can be located to accompany most of the photos by consulting the indexes at the front of the book; some of these notes are quite detailed, though the tone is usually self-congratulatory, suggesting that inclusion may have been by subscription.
  • Situated right opposite the Windsor Railway Station, the Windsor Produce Store doubtless occupies a prominent position. Besides being a commission agent, Mr Tyner is a wholesale and retail, wood, coal and produce merchant. The store is commodious and also well-proportioned in so far as goods for sale are concerned. It is one of those establishments wherein a purchaser generally happens to immediately see the line that is required. The full address of the store is 178 Albert Street, Windsor. Telephone 520, that suburb.
  • William Tyner's brother, James (and another brother, Ralph), a wood and coal merchant, opened a store in High Street, Malvern. The Sands &​ McDougall postal directories (and rate books) show that James (&​ Ralph) Tyner set up their own store in High Street in Malvern, initially at 146 High Street (south side, between Lambert Ave and Glenferrie Rd), c1903, and later at 197 High Street (north side, between Mercer Rd and Glenferrie Rd), c1910. The Malvern store was always listed in the postal directories as 'James Tyner, produce merchant', which seems to confirm that the photograph attached to this record is of William's store in Windsor (which was listed as 'W. Tyner'), and not the Malvern store.
