Emanuel Kepreotes bought the Acropolis Cafe, Gunnedah, from the Melitas Brothers in partnership with Peter Veneris in 1923.

Emanuel died on 24/1/1973, aged 73, and is buried in the (Old) Cemetery, Hunter Street, Gunnedah, plot, MC15.

[Note the "zorni and rundes" (belt and braces) and the "high-riding pants" - a style much favoured by pre-1980's Kytherians, including - [much to my embarrassment when I was growing up - my father - Con George Poulos, Gilgandra, NSW.]
