Published Obituary

From The Advertiser, Tuesday 26 Jun 1906:

"The death occurred on Friday of Mr. Wilhelm Heinrick Christoff Dittmar, the well-known baker and confectioner, of Freeman-street. Mr. Dittmar was a native of Germany and arrived in South Australia in May, 1855. He was born on April 27, 1830. On his arrival he was employed by Messrs. Gerke & Rodemann, of Rundle street, and after three years with them went to Tanunda. He subsequently started in business on his own account at Angaston, where he was married in 1839. Later he came to Adelaide and established a business in Rundle-street. After 13½ years he started the present business in Freeman street, which has been in existence for nearly 30 years. The deceased gentleman left a family of five sons and two daughters, two of the former being married. All the family reside in Adelaide. Mr. Dittmar never entered into public life, but was an original member of the German Club and the Liedertafel."[1]
