Built in the 1860s, this unique shop is the last genuine period store in Tasmania and has been operated by the same family since the turn of the 20th century. The glass either side of the front door has been replaced dues to vandalism but this piece is original.

We might have shops in our city as old as R. Shoot & Son but I'm quite sure we don't have even one umbrella shop never mind one that is 150 years old.

Vintage Sign indeed!. So uniquely vintage! Have never even heard of an umbrella repair shop - didn't even know they ever existed. A big plus is the makeup of the sign in almost non existant stained glass. A true work of art to boot.

I echo Jan's and Diane's comments - I don't think I have ever seen a shop specifically for the repair of Umbrellas. Ideal for the theme1

A wonderful sign in true Victorian style. Google James Smith and sons for our oldest umbrella and walking stick store - similar style, c 1830 and still going strong in central London.
