Cars parked at Clinton’s Garage, Burgundy Street, Heidelberg. Car on left owned by Mr. Janes, a photographer, of Ivanhoe. Mr W.E. Clinton sits in car on right, an American “Krit”. Car in doorway is an electric buggy with solid rubber wheels, owned by Professor Laver from Melbourne University.
Clinton’s Garage was located at 107-111 Burgundy Street, on the south side between Cape and Hawdon Street. It was a little further up the hill from where the bus stop is now, in the front of Burgundy Plaza. William Ernest Clinton, a bicycle and motorcycle mechanic, opened his garage in 1910 and it was located on the same site until the early 1960s. Mr Clinton was a Heidelberg councillor for many years, and was Mayor in 1940-1. When he died in 1958, his son Clyde took over the business.
