Life in Early Poverty Bay

Old Commercial Travellers

Old Commercial Travellers

Of great interest to me are the glass cases containing the photos of the old-time commercial travellers who visited this district many years ago. Every one of those same photos recalls the days that are gone never to return. There is Salmon of the Kaiapoi; Waters, of Wellington; D. Jones, Levisohn, etc. Old “Kiltie” Smith of the Masonic Hotel, Napier. is also there. There are so many faces there that I knew intimately, but time has obliterated many of the little incidents and jokes connected with each one.
