A & W Keys, Butcher, Upper Hutt, Wellington, 1910s

A & W Keys, Butcher's Shop, circa 1910. Alexander Turnbull Library

Digging further, on the left hand side of the Troops Marching picture, (see previous post), is the butcher's shop of A & W Key. Here, a wool wagon brings bales down from the hills and on to the stores of Wellington prior to shipping out through the port.

A crowd celebrates the Coronation of George V in 1911 outside the premises of A & W Keys and H R Gibbs, chemist, Main Street, Upper Hutt. Alexander Turnbull Library.

Could Upper Hutt get anymore exciting than a coronation celebration? Dig deeper...
