Stewart Hogarth was born in about 1887. He enlisted in the Anzacs on the 19 May, 1916. He was severely gassed and wounded in France and returned to Australia on the 3 September, 1919. He was eventually discharged on the 11 October, 1919.
After the First World War, he worked as a local real estate agent in Mortdale and surrounds. Stewart married his wife Erma Gunter in 1929. Stewart Hogarth then operated his own Real Estate business from an office in River Road, Oatley West. It was later to become the site of The Gospel Hall. He purchased two blocks of land at 11 & 13 Frederick Street. Stewart commissioned his father Richard, a builder, to construct two attached shops and residences as an investment. These are where the Craft Shop and the Newsagency are now located. Stewart Hogarth went progressively blind from his gassing in France. He could not continue as a Real Estate Agent, but the family kept a rent roll which they had established & continued to collect rents for many. Although struggling with the ownership of the Oatley shops, Hogarth continued on, but the War intervened & rent control meant the position with rent was even worse, and he couldn't sell the properties for a reasonable price because of the fixed low rents. To make matters worse, there was an eccentric old lady, Mrs Davies, in the shop which is now the Craft shop, who sold ladies underwear and sometimes only opened for half a day per week. Mr Hogarth felt sorry for her and despite her being well in arrears in the rent, would not have her evicted. When Stewart Hogarth passed away sometime in the 60's, the shops were left to his son, Graham and daughter Mrs Tallais. Mrs Tallais sold her share to her brother, Graham. Mike Flanigan purchased the freehold of 13 Frederick St when it was offered for sale by the Tallais family the building in Frederick Street now known as number 13, but originally number 25.
