Staying in Ahuriri (where yesterdays photo was taken) and moving just down the road a bit there is an interesting building. Napier is well known for its Art Deco style in architecture. This is one such building. These days it is a restaurant. The New Zealand Shipping Company was a shipping company whose ships ran passenger and cargo services between Great Britain and New Zealand between 1873 and 1973. In 1882, the company's ships were equipped with refrigeration and a frozen meat service began from New Zealand to England. I dont know how much was carried out from the building nor when this building was built and used. However, I do have a photo (see link below) to suggest it was probably used for cargo before 1905. Interesting too to me is that the wharf looks kind of similar these days. I shall take a photo one day and show you.
