Finally getting round to doing a register of early shops and businesses of Thames..or should I say Shortland and Grahamstown.
Over the weeks I'll post some of the names, remembering many are still operational today. Such as A & G Price (Foundry), Read Bros (Hardware) and Battsons (Plumbers).
One of our most treasured shops was PALMERS SWEET SHOP, you can read more about the shop via a recent Journal article.
Other shops that also are featured in the Treasury Journal by other writers are:
WOODS SHOP and HANSEN BROS.
