When I started cycling in Adelaide in 1984, there was a bicycle shop in Halifax Street. Long closed now.
This week I was speaking to a woman in her 70s, who used to cycle to school and work in Mt Barker. Her father bought her a new bike of brand Healing, and she asked if I knew anything about it.
Try here as they have a bit of info on Healings.
"The company began in 1896 with Melbourne engineer Alf Healing building bicycles in his backyard shed. Their racing versions were used by Australian champions until the 1960s. At one stage after World War II - about the time Soichiro Honda was building his first motorised bicycle in Japan - Healing was doing the same in Melbourne. An example can be found in the Scienceworks Museum in Spotswood."
They were commonly the main competitor to S.A's own Super Elliott bikes in terms of racing frames during the 50's and 60's.
All of this is on Google with some more info as well.
South side of the street, 200m toward KW Street from the current location of Bicycle Express. Small, pokey, filled with crap, wonderful old store which closed (dunno) late 80s, early 90s
in Jan 1932 advertised as at 96 Halifax St
in Dec 1932 advertised as the cnr of King William and Halifax St
heather - yes, it was - good shop.
But for some reason and because I'm an idiot I didn't actually read the OP and thus missed mention of Stelroy, which I suspect predates me.
