Biography
John Bell (known as Jack Bell) had worked in a Quorn store and went to Farina as a book keeper. After a sojourn in Darwin, Jack returned to buy out Manfield''s with his brother, Richard. The Land Transfer was recorded on the 6th October 1926.

Bell''s store was wrecked in a severe storm and Mr Bell was hurt when a roof beam fell on him. The store, the last business to operate in the town, closed its doors in 1967. Mr and Mrs Bell retired to North Adelaide where they lived to 91 and 95 years of age respectively.

This biographical information is taken from the book by Rob Olston, "Farina, from Gibbers to Ghost Town". Further reading and photographs on the story of Bells store can be found in the book.
