1903: Crowds of shoppers throng Smith Street, Collingwood in the area near Foy and Gibson's. Further down the street are Treadway's drapers, the post office, T. E. Jones bootshop and The Hall. Trams go in both directions, elegantly dressed women hurry back and forth across the road and the kerbs are lined with horses and carriages. The huge Foy and Gibson shop has an elaborate facade built over its verandah and dominates the streetscape.
