Mr. F. Feakes. licensed plumber,
1915, Formerly Mr. 0. Nicholls,
Mr. F. Feakes. licensed plumber, of Commissioner Street, Cooma, purchased the business eleven years ago from Mr. 0. Nicholls, who was in a very small way, and built it up to its present dimensions. Mr. Feakes, who specialises in septic tanks and sewerage disposal, was originally foreman for the firm of N. W. Trevaskis, Lane Cove Road, North Sydney, and was for fourteen years the leading hand at Canberra, where he built the first tank and arranged the sanitary system in Federal Territory, an epoch in history.
