Upper Hutt, Fergusson Drive by Woolworths Late 1960s, looking west
Does anyone remember Fergusson Drive looking like this?
An artist's sketch of the supermarket was printed on February 2, 1966.Woolworths
At this date, the road visible was the Martin Street extension, connecting Russell Street to King Street. On the right, the car park between Russell and Wakefield streets looks unfinished.
The gap between this rectangular building and Fergusson Drive was closed during 1973, enlarging Woolworths by around 50%.
The building first opened on February 24, 1966.
