30-09-1873: Ferguson & Urie advertise 10 Collins street for sale.

The Argus, Melbourne, Tuesday 30th September1873, page 8.

“FOR SALE, or To Let, No. 10 Collins-street east. Ferguson and Urie, Curzon-street, Hotham”.

This is one of the earliest indications that the Ferguson & Urie company had premises in Collins street. The Company didn’t end up selling the premises at address 10 Collins street and ten years later, in 1884, they decided to erect  a seven story building which would become their main business headquarters.
