On the corner of High Street and Lawry Street Northcote Mrs Agnes Glew ran a small bootshop. It measured only 10 feet by 7 feet. In this tiny space Mrs Glew raised four children as well as operating her small business.
Born in London in 1819, Agnes died in Northcote in 1911, aged 92. She is buried in the Northcote (German) Cemetery in Separation Street.
