Friar’s Club

Bert seems to have been a prominent member of the club established in 1904. Latin scholars among you will know the meaning of club logo. Still operating it is the venue for big name ‘celebrity roasts’.

Bert proposes Louis Da Costa (Sydney Vaudeville agent and early Australian Film producer) for membership of the Friars Club in 1923.
