Batt and Lyons

Cnr Sturt and Raglan St, Ballarat

My mother June Angus said :

"This was my father's building. (Frederick T Batt). He owned it and as well as selling petrol and oil, there was a workshop at the back where some 8 or so men were employed. 2 Office girls were also employed there. My mother ran it during the war while he was employed doing war work. He reconditioned motors as well as grinding pistons and other things as well. He also owned the service station cnr Drummond and Sturt sts. He sold out to Keith Purbrick in maybe the mid to late 1950's. It was a real thrill to see this emerge and just as I remembered the building."
