Thomas Carr (c. 1838–1900)

Port Adelaide has lost an old and honored identity by the death of Mr. Thomas Carr, who passed suddenly away from heart disease on Friday last. Mr. Carr had been a resident of the town for nearly half a century, was a prominent member of the Port Adelaide Working Men's Association, and a foundation member of the Foresters' court. During the last few years he had acted as caretaker of the Working Men's Hall, and the esteem in which he was universally held was evidenced by the large number of friends who attended his funeral. The cortege, which extended over a mile in length, was headed by members of the Foresters' court and of the Working Men's Association.
