An extremely rare photo of Mr Paris in 1948.
Paris was well liked, respected and had a caring personality. He guided the DHBC from its formation in 1908 until his death in 1950. He had a bicycle shop behind 1 Hercules Street, Dulwich Hill. This shop was a social focal point for the club for decades.

Paris worked and lived at his shop. The original structure still exist but has been converted into a small house. This fronts the carpark area behind the Gladstone Hotel.
