Now, not often does one family trade continuously from the same location in the
heart of Melbourne, for a century.
We’ve got some pictures here.

The Michael family has!
Now, this week, celebrating 100 years; the Michael’s building erected in 1916,
originally as a pawnbroker and gunsmiths; in the 60s it became a pharmacy; the
70s, a camera shop; and Michael’s is home to the world’s largest camera museum -
A Voyage Through Time.
The business is now run by a fifth generation Michael - that is their surname - so
it’s happy 100th !
