MINDING BUSINESS: Author Dorothy Edwards of Alstonville launches her new book on Sunday.

WHO remembers Brown and Jolly? Joan Lawman's Beauty Salon? Harry Crethar's Wunder Bar?

Former Lismore florist, now turned author Dorothy Edwards will turn a youthful 92 on December 3. She's lived in Lismore all her life.

Last year she launched her first book, Lismore's Corner Shops - and now she's written a new one, Where Was That Lismore Business?

"I was always fascinated by the blacksmith's shops at the lower end of Woodlark Street," writes Dorothy. "Those big horses and the fires blazing away while they were being shoed. There was a dark little wine shop in the block. What was their story?"

Wanting to find out the stories of former Lismore businesses, mostly those in the four main streets of the CBD, Dorothy researched dozens of them. Two descendants of former owners, Diane Manias of the Capitol Cafe and Pam Tippett from Walter Tippett's Mens' Mercers, will be at the book launch.

It's on this Sunday, November 25 at the Workers Club at 12.30 for a $27.50 lunch.

To book, call Dorothy on 6628 0134. She'll be at home, signing books.
