Family grocer, 1902

Mr. Cook established himself in business in 1890, and he now fulfils orders from all parts of New Zealand. He has a branch establishment at Cheviot, and also a butter factory, where he makes clover-brand butter, which has gained four first prizes at agricultural and pastoral shows in Canterbury. For the year ending December, 1901, the output was sixty tons, all made from pasteurised milk.

We have digitised a rather splendid 1902 publication Tourists’ guide to Canterbury.

I will share some of the interesting ads and pictures from it in a series of posts – there’s lots of information about local businesses and places in 1902.
