Administrative history

The business had its roots in the old Victorian stock and station agents firm of Dal Campbell and Company. From 1884 it went under various managements including Alexander Pearson and H E Rowe, who carried on the business after the death of Pearson. The name of the firm then changed to Pearson, Rowe and Company. When Alexander Smith became a partner the firm's name changed to Pearson, Rowe, Smith and Company. At a later stage Wilson Cameron was admitted to the partnership. After the death of Smith, the firm became a proprietary company in 1914, chiefly from members of the staff of the firm, including C S Wood (Managing Director), P F Rowe (son of H E Rowe), H Boyd (Secretary), J A Burrell (accountant), R A Bear and R McKee. On 18 December 1937 the company was acquired by Goldsbrough, Mort and Co Ltd.
