Thames (NZ): 1930 Cars

If your Parents/Grandparents had 495 Pounds in 1930, they may well have purchased a HUDSON Great 8 from Gordon MINCHER of Thames. There were few cars in Thames over these years, most relying on the train for transport or perhaps using a service car for out of town trips.

Gordon MINCHER had a service station, located on the eastern side of Pollen Street (Willoughby to Grey Streets section). The business operated from c1920s to post 1940s.
