Auctioneer's Sale Room
Following on from the previous post about the Slaughterhouse on Hillhead Street, which it seems was out of use before 1920, I have been looking for evidence of what the building was used for next. The advert show below from 1923 might offer an explanation. A business called 'Goodman & Co' were operating as 'Auctioneers and Valuators' in Emsdorf Street but state that their 'Sale Room' was located on Hillhead Street. Presumably, this sale room would have been a decent size to accommodate furniture and the like and we know that the old slaughterhouse had recently fallen out of use so I've concluded that this was most likely the same building.
The advert reads "Sales Conducted, Town or Country at lowest Commission; All Sales promptly settled day after Sale. Stocks valued or purchased or sold as Commission." I haven't been able to find out any more about the 'Goodman & Co' business but it may well have been connected to the Sydney Goodman who ran various other business ventures in the Emsdorf Street area around that time. This business seems to have been short-lived as just a few years later the phone number 'Lundin Links 16' (noted in the Goodman advert) was being used by the Victoria Private Hotel (see their advert below).
