(Roughly) Standard printing office of the Canterbury Standard, James Willis & Co. in the fifties (Joseph Brittan was said to be Editor & first proprietor). On the block from Harper’s offices to Walton’s Bond.

Mr James Willis, sixties

Printing office, Hereford Street Standard Oxford Terrace-Then not a tree, or fence, on the river.

Here the present James Willis, George Hart, and several more were printer boys.

The Standard died and changes came and the House was turned into the Royal Standard public House. It only lasted a year or two. J.E. March, the Government factotum was a sort of clerk and collector in the above, and then got a lucky shift into the Provincial Immigration Charitable Aid Department, and a good many stories could be told about those offices.
