Iconic shed sells in Geelong
Saturday, 26 October 2019
Having been in the family for 3 generations the iconic shed at 77 Preston Street Geelong West went under the hammer on Friday. The shed was bought by the family to run their fruit and vegetable business from. The family also had close ties with the Geelong Football Club (Cliff Rankin captain/coached of the 1925 premiership side, several others family members played too). The team would gather at the shed and the late and great Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer practiced his hand passing through the open window of the car, right in front of the shed. The property is now a popular cafe (Box Office) run by Mark Stawicki. Mark is hopeful to continue on with the new owner. It’s always fun to auction property with some history!
