Clewis George “Bill” Shearer 1909

Bill as he was known was a motor engineer by trade and for many years conducted a motor garage business in the northern part of New South Wales. One of his many hobbies was the restoration of old motor vehicles and even after his retirement to Sandgate Queensland he was still involved in restoration work. His main hobby now is the restoration of early model gramophones and he has one of the finest collections of these musical instruments that could be found anywhere.
