IOTW no.628

By May 11, 2022May 12th, 2022IOTW

Yet another New Zealand Minor photograph, unearthed (as on many previous occassions) by John McDonald. The image captures the opening of a new facility for the Maungaturoto Dairy Company, Northland, N.Z. on 23rd November 1934. The parked 1932 Morris Minor Saloon is dwarfed by the large American built Fords, Buicks and Dodges, the models from Detroit and Dearborn massively outselling the British imports in New Zealand at that time. (Note the even smaller Austin Seven) The image can be found  in The Auckland Memorial Museum.
