Go to PHOTOGRAPHS of Early Kaikorai Shops - 50 to 100 years back.

Locations for shops in the Kaikorai area is not too difficult to determine, the problem is to get a photograph of either a single shop or a group of shops.   If anyone has a suitable photo or photos and would be happy to loan them for copying I would be very grateful.
I have created both Kaikorai & Roslyn sketch maps showing the various shops from around 1919 till 1950 with their changes of owners where known.
