A Brief History of Booth and Taylor
The names “Booth and Taylor” have been synonymous with building supplies in the inner-west for well over a hundred years. John Booth, who was born in London in 1892, “stopped ashore” at Kincumber, Brisbane Water in 1840 to learn shipbuilding and in 1846 turned master builder. In 1854 he moved to Balmain where he initially engaged in shipbuilding before opening a sawmill on Johnston’s Bay at the site that later became the container terminal.
His business prospered and he became active in politics, initially as the first Mayor of Balmain and subsequently as the local member for West Sydney in State Parliament. He died in 1898, the year in which Booth and Taylor’s present home was constructed.
