Mundell & Co., Sack & Bag Merchants

Letter from Mundell and Co. complaining ('again') about the bin in front of their premises that interferes with the packing and unpacking of lorries, is constantly being broken by lorries running into it, and serves as a meeting place for street cleaners whose 'language is by no means the choicest'. The letter writer suggests that the bin be moved to the opposite side of the street, where there are no shops, and adds that the bin is currently broken.

17 June 1901
Flinders Street, Melbourne.
