A view of Main Street, Upper Hutt
Brian Pearce dates this image between 1906 to 1908 he says "The two-storey building in the right distance (a little hard to see) was the first brick building built in Upper Hutt and dates from 1906.
1906 to 1908 as the Post Office - built in 1909 opposite the Provincial Hotel - has not yet been built."
Four children standing in the middle of the street and a horse-drawn vehicle outside a store. On the right side (lower end) is the general blacksmith's shop of W J Carter.
