From the City of Port Phillip Heritage Centre:
Galliers & Klaerrs, iron founders and plumbers, occupied 135-151 Inkerman Street, St Kilda for almost one hundred years. Henry Galliers, plumber and gasfitter, opened his business on the site in 1870. He entered into a partnership with Frederick Klaerr in 1883. Galliers retired in 1884, and Klaerr retained the business forming a new partnership with Alexander Law, but retaining Galliers’ name in the business title. The foundry predominantly produced stoves and heating appliances and patented a new gas hot water heater in 1888.
