Nicholas and Mottee Bubonic Plague 1900
Two Greeks, George Nicholas and Peter Motis(Mottee) contracted the bubonic plague while working in oyster saloons during the outbreak of 1900 in Sydney.
Until recently, the outbreak of the plague in Sydney was not generally known, with the publication of a register of those who contracted the deadly disease. Three hundred and three persons are recorded as having contracted the plague with one hundred and three failing to recover.
