# 15 ~ My Special Place

# 15 ~ My Special Place

I like to go here for lunch when I'm out shopping. It's the big department store where I do much of my shopping
The original Myer Emporium began in my home town of Bendigo in Victoria and still trades there..

The Myer retail group was started by Sidney Myer, who migrated from Russia to Melbourne in 1899 with very little money and little knowledge of English to join his elder brother, Elcon Myer (1875–1938), who had left Russia two years earlier. They opened the first Myer store in Bendigo, Victoria in 1900. After prospering, the second store opened in 1908.

I am unable to get out and take photos due to having a throat infection so I'm having to use what I already had taken with the iphone
Thank you for your well wishes, I'm sure to be up and about soon

Myers in Fremantle has closed down due to lack of custom. Glad yours is still going strong!

We should be looking at hot chicken soup if you are sick... LOL!
I like the photo, the blue and chrome. Nice effect/treatment too!

We've all got our favourite spots for coffee when we're shopping.
Hope you're better soon.

Looks like a down home type dining room with the decor and numbers. Great composition. Get well soon.
