Memories of Lot 59 High Street Willunga
Heather Quick remembers: When I was a child this building was the Bennet & Fisher office until they built their new office next door on what was a vacant block & that building is now the Green Room. Mr Lloyd Leverington was the Bennet & Fisher Manager & Mr & Mrs Leverington continued to live in the house on the corner. I loved that house. My brother & I spent a lot of time with Mr & Mrs Levy when we were children as we lived just up the road. I can remember their back door was never locked & we would quite often run down the road into the house, grabbing a biscuit on the way then up the stairs & into bed with Mr & Mrs Levy. I still have memories of Mr. Levy wearing his long johns. Mr Levy would let me play with his typewriter in his office & I always said I would be his Secretary when I grew up.
