Bio note # 9 Bert gets married

Bert moved to Sydney in 1894 to take his ‘chances’ professionally. Privately, much was going on as reported in the Hebrew press of the time. He returns to Melbourne to marry.

Above – Table Talk Newspaper. Below is the Weekly Times report. Wedding reports were a big deal at the turn of the 20th century, and despite the Weekly Times misspelling the Levy family name, the report provides plenty of detail. Clearly the Waxman’s nor Levy’s were working class !! How wedding costs were divided at this time is unknown?
