Final 7 ‘Representative Men’ from the Leader Newspaper 1902

The final 7, with the last being the most interesting.

Victorian Treasurer William Sheils

Sir Thomas Fitzgerald – A notable Surgeon

Mr Richard O’Connor- Senate Leader

Mr Richard Fitz Gibson – Board of Works Chairman

Sir Duncan Gillies MLA & Speaker

Sir William Lyne – Federal Home Minister
Mr William Trenwith M.L.A Minister for the Railways and Chief Secretary

This last Representative Man would have been an interesting sketch for Bert. YOu may recall Bert was an apprentice boot maker at his father’s factory in West Melbourne in the 1880s… probably age 13-14. Bert wrote of this time and seeing Mr Trenwith the Union Leader visits to his father’s factory in 1912. (below)
