    The "Hobbies" store was on Tarleton St leading from Church St. to the ice house square. It was the first place my parents let me go into town for on my own...

    Didn't Model World move into St. Johns from a location on Bold St.?

    The ice house was on the square in front of the present LFC store location IIRC.

    Yes you're right,I remember now vaguely as I only went there once or twice.
    But I do know there was a Hobbies in the precinct,,dunno if it was the same one in Tarleton Street? it then became Model World and there was a Model World in Bold Street more or less opposite Stan Catchpoles which was anothe model shop.
