Sydney Philip Emanuel (1861–1919)

A cable has been received from London announcing the death of Mr. Sydney Philip Emanuel, a well-known West Australian, on 27th April, in his fifty-eighth year. He was born at Goulburn, N.S.W., and first went to the West in 1882 as a member of an exploration party to the East Kimberley that set out in that year under the leadership of the late Mr. Michael Durack. In 1886 he, with his brother, Isidore, went to the West Kimberley, and took up a stretch of country on the Fitzroy River, where they spent many years in hard pioneering work building up a cattle station. In 1894 the brothers went to Perth, and, with the late Mr. Alexander Forrest, established the stock and station firm of Forrest, Emanuel and Co., now known as Emanuel Bros. Limited.
