In 1933 Herbert Ryan along with his brother, Gus, and Herb’s son, Alan, set up R&R with the help of an old friend, Leo Robins, hence the name R&R. The first garments were cleaned and pressed in the shop window on the corner of Montague and Auburn Street’s in Goulburn. To clean a suit cost four and sixpence.
