Blast from the town’s past

Historical Photo

An excellent 1936 image of HC Maxwell Ltd Bakers and Pastrycooks has emerged as overseas family of the owners seek information about their relatives.

The image ended up in the hands of local identity George Mandeno - but he says it predates his knowledge of the town, not because he is too young, but because he lived ‘three miles out on the farm’ and only came to town for church and Christmas.

The business was in the building which is now Subway.

A copy of the photo is being held at Te Awamutu Museum and if anyone has information about the business or who may be in the photo, they are welcome to enquire at the Museum front desk.
