History of 32 Gwydir Street

Elijah Odell, greengrocer, lived in Gwydir St in 1883 (see Kelly's Directory). That particular directory does not have many house numbers. But Elijah Odell is living at 32 Gwydir Street in 1892 (see Kelly's Directory) as a greengrocer. He is still there in 1904 (see Spalding's Directory) although he is now a marine store dealer. He is also at number 34 in 1904 as a greengrocer, so he obviously is expanding his shop.

Robert Brown, oil and hardware merchant, lived here in 1913 (see Spalding's Directory). Charles Brown, hardware stores,lived at number 62 and number 64 during 1904, 1913 and 1916. There are photographs and information about the Brown family at number 62.
