Description:

Rare engraving of the fire at Fraser’s Stores which was situated on the corner of Barrack and York Street, Sydney.

The store was owned by John Frazer (1827-1884), merchant, company director and philanthropist. The store was rebuilt for £15,000 in massive stone and with modern fire-fighting equipment. From the mid-1860s Frazer speculated in land in Queensland and by 1871 had four runs of his own and eighteen in partnership. In Sydney he had built two large new stores, a bonded warehouse and the impressive Frazer House. He had also sold his home, Ranelagh at Darling Point, and about 1874 bought Quiraing at Edgecliff.
