Fletcher Jones, Adelaide

Fletcher Jones, AdelaideThis is an interesting store in Hindley Street, Adelaide. Obviously it is now a Fletcher Jones store, a company which has it's origins in the western district of Victoria in the years between the wars.

The Fletcher Jones website reports that having established stores in Warrnambool and Hamilton in 1924, the company expanded to have a store in Collins St, Melbourne in 1946 with stores in Adelaide, Sydney and Hobart between 1949 and 1952.

That Adelaide store may have been this one however the style of the building looks earlier than 1949 to me and Fletcher Jones may have taken over an exisiting premises.

Perhaps one of my Adelaide friends knows a bit more about this handsome shop.
