Tailor’s Button

L. V. Howard, Lt Collins St

The Herald (Melbourne), 24th September 1909 page 1.

L. V. Howard (1884-1943) was described as a high grade tailor and mercer, from 1909 until 1954, so the business continued after his death.  Leon Vernon Howard (1884-1943) operated from the Block Arcade before this. He was a keen cyclist, competing in cycling races.

The Australian Jewish Herald (Melbourne), 9th April 1936 page 5.

In 1913 he had the unfortunate experience of an elderly (62 years!) man stepping in front of his motorcycle with fatal consequences.
