This company was a processing and canning plant in Nelson.
I can still smell the place today.
We would know if it was Jam or things like Peas being processed by just standing out side.
To me it was an amazing place filled with thumping noisy equipment.
My mum (prior to leaving Nelson) and my aunty worked at "Kirk's" for years. We had great company social club Xmas parties each year when we visited my aunty and uncle in Nelson.
