It's 100 years since Boys sold that hanky

ON OCTOBER 12, 1912, Billy Boys sold his first item, a handkerchief, from his new store.

Billy's grandchildren, Phil Truscott and Glenda Quarmby, said over the years only Walker's would have employed more people in Maryborough.

This photo is from 1929, after the shop had moved from Kent St to Adelaide St, where it stayed until closing in 1985. The grand old store is now a Dimmeys outlet.
