Trove Tuesday – Curry’s Store

From time to time I participate in the #TroveTuesday activity. On Tuesdays family historians sometimes post a story about a resource relating to their research that they have found on Trove. I don’t intend publishing each week to this blog but I will certainly contribute some posts to the Trove Tuesday theme from time to time.

My first selection is an article from 1875 about Mr Curry’s store in Wallsend, NSW

1875 ‘Mr. Curry’s Store.’, Miners’ Advocate and Northumberland Recorder (Newcastle, NSW : 1873 – 1876), 28 August, p. 7 Edition: MORNING., viewed 30 December, 2014, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article142009372

and for those who find the above hard to read here is a transcription:

Mr. Curry‘s Store.We are requested to remind our readers in and around Wallsend that~Mr. T.Curry has how opened out his extensive stock of groceries, drapery, fancy goods, and produce, and is anxious to treat with. every. one who drink teas or absorb sugar,sas. he intends proving to  these that a good bit of cheese preceding these, mixed with some excellent mustard and sauces of unmen-tionable and superior brands is, the very desideratum of an epicurean stomach, which, if disorganised, can be put right either with coffee or cocoa: pills or vinegar.
