Sharpe's Penny Pictures

William George Sharpe and his wife Beatrice Amy Matthews opened a grocery shop at 189 Holland Street(now 114 Holland Street)–(corner of Onslow Street) in 1919, and operated Sharpe’s Penny Pictures in the backyard of the grocery shop starting in January 1930. The fire brigade forced the closure of the show as a fire hazard in 1933. The grocery shop closed in 1950. The grocery shop was demolished(date unknown?), and is now a small shopping center(Old Values collectable shop), and two other shops, and a car park.
