The late Richard Yeoman
We regret to announce the death of Mr. R. Yeoman, of Melbourne, who was a well-known photographer. The deceased was one of a photographic family who were amongst the pioneers of photography in Victoria, and first opened a photographic business at Emerald Hill (now South Melbourne), about forty years ago. Some ten years later he established a business in Bourke Street, Melbourne, which he successfully carried on until his death.
He was a very popular man amongst the profession, and made many friends, by whom he will be greatly missed.
The late Mr. Yeoman was a widower and leaves two daughters — Mrs. Plumpton, who at the present time is away in England, and Miss B. Yeoman.
A characteristic portrait is reproduced on this page, and we extend our sympathy to deceased’s relations and many friends.
