J A Hazelwood Grocery Store #2 - 1900c - Upper Hutt, Wellington

This is probably J A Hazelwood's Second Store on Main Street, Upper Hutt, circa late 1890s to early 1900s. Alexander Turnbull Library.

James Alfred Hazelwood is on the right with a bicycle. The man with the child is probably Mr Gillies. Bill Wilkie is one of the other men. A group of children and a dog stand in the centre. They stand with tools of the trade around them - bicycles for deliveries and a hand cart  for heavier loads, such as the parcels pictured, is on the right.

The Hazelwoods vacated these premises around 1904, moving into a larger brick building in that year. 

Must dig deeper...
