Description:

Colonial engraving of Hilton Wood, Riversdale Rd, Hawthorn residence of John and Elizabth Wood.

John Wood and the younger members of his large family had already moved out of Collingwood in 1869 to live at Riversdale in Riversdale Road Hawthorn. Wood left his home in Yorkshire and arrived in Australia in 1848, aged twenty two. After a stint as a timber merchant in Fitzroy, he purchased a two acre site on the eastern side of Wellington Street in Collingwood, where he became in succession, the owner of the Yorkshire Hotel, and the founder of the Yorkshire Brewery Company. He also owned a wine and spirits store in Peel Street, on the Wellington Street corner. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace and occupied a seat in the Council of the Borough of East Collingwood.
