Crystal Mirror & Glass Co. Ltd, 1940s : Picturing Canterbury

Crystal Mirror and Glass Co. 283 Tuam Street, Christchurch. My late father Wilfred Malcolm (Mac) Stretch (b. 8.12.1910) finished his apprenticeship with the Crystal Mirror & Glass Company and left to join the P & T in 1948. I can still remember the overpowering smell of ammonia when I went to see Dad – but he was so used to it, he couldn’t smell it. The building was much later occupied by Continental Caterers. 1940-44.
