Tauranga 1922

I was lucky enough to be loaned a New Zealand Directory from 1922.
More to come from this. Check out the building in the right hand top corner. When I was a kid that was still there and was a business called Judd's Radio. First place in Tauranga to sell TV's! We used to go there and watch the TV in the shop window along with about 20 other families! Black and white of course and the reception was something like looking through a snow storm. As for the ferry service well that became known as Faulkner's Ferries and these ran for decades.
