A time back I received a phone call asking if berowralivinghistory knew where the Thirgood Store had been located in Berowra.
We did not at that time have any information and we were not even sure of the spelling of the name.
It was then revealed that the receipt, pictured here, was held by the Local Studies section of Hornsby Library and they were keen to get more information.They have done that and the following basic details are:
G Thirgood,General Storekeeper of Berowra opened his store about c.1946.The store was located on the corner of Pacific Highway and Park Street (now Berowra Waters Road).
By 1963 G Thirgood is listed in the NSW voter’s register as a “charge hand” and so had obviously moved on.
The purchaser indicated on the receipt is Berowra Advancement Assn.
berowralivinghistory was aware there had been a number of community groups over the years but little is known about this one.
Can you please help us with information about either Thirgood’s store or Berowra Advancement Association ?
