Firstly from 1955 to 1958 at Freneau Park College and from 1959 to 1964 at Downlands College Toowoomba.
Freneau Park (Freneau Park was known as St. Helens before it was a school)
Freneau Park was a working dairy farm in 1955.
After leaving Downlands College in 1964 Peter started his working career employed by Francis Patrick Malone of F.P. Malone & Co - Public Accountants and Auditors of 154 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley. Peter's early work years were in the field of Accounting, Taxation and Auditing.
Saturdays were taken up working for his Dad - A Brisbane Registered Paddock Bookmaker. Immediately after his 18th birthday Peter obtained his licence to work for his father at the racecourse. You cannot obtain a Clerk's Licence until you turn 21 unless you work for your father who is also a registered Bookmaker
Peter moved to Sydney in 1970 and worked for a Taxation Specialist, Kevin Roberts of K T Roberts and Co.
John and Gwen Harrigan were clients of Kevin Roberts and were joint owners of Sydney Bistros with Keith and Dennis Wong.
Sydney Bistros operated both Whisky-Au-Go-Go and Bonapartes at Kings Cross, Hawaiian Eye Bistro and Stagecoach Restaurant.
At one time Sydney Bistro's was the operator of Chequers International Theatre Restaurant.
Sammy Davis Jr appeared at Chequers Night Club in March 1970 just before his employment with Kevin Roberts.
Peter prepared the Income Tax Returns for a number of Overseas Artists while employed by Kevin Roberts. Keven, in those days, operated out of Richards Building 55 Rowe Street, Sydney and occupied the sixth floor. Sydney Bistros Pty Ltd sub-leased the fourth floor from Kevin Roberts. The building was on the corner of Castlereagh Street and Rowe Street and was known as "Richards" English Mensware store. The 'Hotel Australia' was next door.
The building on the left of the 'Hotel Australia' is 'Richards House'. Rowe Street was in between.
