Goodley & Sons - Family Grocers
Listed in the 1936 Stones Directory at 7 Taieri Road, Roslyn as Goodley (A) & Sons, grocers (street number change probably was due to street renumbering), also listed in 1942 and 1950 directories. Bill Everest of Kaikorai, who was a long time staff member of Goodley's store, took over management from 1968 till 1974 when the shop closed due to the perceived threat of supermarkets opening in the area.
Alex Goodley (right) and his staff outside the Roslyn shop sometime in the 1930s. That's Charlie Billing next to his boss and Crawford Goodley next to him. Does anyone recognise the other two gents?
