Coles at Wilmot, Tasmania. Australia.

 Wilmot is on the way to Cradle Mountain and is a small rural town.  The very first G.W Coles store in Australia which trained a few of the family and in it's time employed about 15 people and Coles owned some trucks that used to supply the surrounding areas. Thus began the 'Coles' transition to Variety Stores to the Coles Supermarket we now know of today in Australia.


Still has cobwebs handing from the ceiling. It's like stepping back in time.
