[ca. 1896]

These works opened in 1889. In the background are two Haslam machines installed in 1889 and 1890 while the American Hercules compound steam-engine refrigerator in the foreground was installed in 1895. At the time its design was considered very advanced. See A history of the New Zealand Refrigerating Company / Cyril Loach, p. 62.
