Mr William Henry Clark, 95, who died on Monday, was one of the oldest residents of Williamstown. A native of Stepney, London, he and his late wife journeyed soon after their marriage to Zion City, intending to make their home among the Zionists, but they left disappointed with their experiences. Mrs Clark, who was 96, died a few months ago shortly after she and her husband had celebrated the 71st anniversary of their wedding. Mr Clark was buried privately yesterday in the Williamstown Cemetery.
The death has taken place in a private hospital in Malvern East of Mr John Yeoman, 76, formerly one of Melbourne’s best known photographers. In the days when family photographs were popular he was the proprietor of the Eden Studios in Swanston Street, and also owned branches in various parts of the State with headquarters in Chapel Street, Prahran. He opened his first studio in South Melbourne. During the last 16 years Mr Yeoman had lived in Tollington Avenue, Malvern, in semi-retirement, but he retained a keen interest in photography which he did much to advance in Victoria. He is survived by a widow and two sons and two daughters. The burial took place in the St. Kilda Cemetery.
