Mark Foys, Juanita Nielsen and Abe Saffron - a Sydney story
Former family owned department store, now The Downing Centre, Sydney's biggest law courts complex.
There's a rather interesting story involving the name Mark Foys. A really nasty character called Abe Safffron, one of Sydney's chief gangsters died last week (so you can now say anything you like about him - no defamation) . Many believe that he was responsible in 1975 for organising the disappearance / death - her body has never been found - of the Mark Foys heiress, a woman called Juanita Nielsen. This is a notorious uncolved Sydney crime. Nielsen published a local newspaper and was campaigning against property developments and vice and corruption.
