This is not the shop which is a different photo. It depicts Mrs Emily Perriton outside her home in a cul-de-sac off Autumn St Geelong West. Annie Perriton a daughter of Emily and her husband Samuel married Edwin Molyneux [no a in the spelling] but the Molyneux shop belonged to Edwin's father [69 Autumn] and the family later moved in Autumn St [south side] closer to Pakington and established both shop and upstairs house on site. Stocked wallpaper, glass etc as family members also did other forms of home decoration.
