Biography/History

Brothers Robert, John and George Gillespie, as Gillespie Bros & Co. (later Gillespie Bros Ltd), were the proprietors of the Anchor Flour Mills. They began to operate in a simple factory in Barker Street, Sydney, in 1893. In 1920 they built a new mill at Pyrmont. The four-story building operated over the next sixty years. The mill was closed and demolished in 1992.
