Vintage Early Greek Australian Shop Owners

At a family friend's apartment the other night I was shown this photo of an elderly lady's father who came to Australia in the early 1900's. He carved a life for himself in rural Queensland where he began to lease land to graze sheep and doing well he used the proceeds to buy his first store. Here he stands proud with his brothers and they are of course wearing.... bow ties... which immediately caught my eye. This is a wonderful photo and I am proud of the heritage that embodies so many migrant families, especially the Greeks, who came to Australia with next to nothing.
