Inside bottle store in St Aubyn Street, Hastings, showing counters and cash registers
At the far end are wines from different countries, including New Zealand.
Beside the closest cash register one can see a small machine that held the invoices for all cash sales and all charges (in those days there was no eftpos, all sales had to be written up, with third copy for records for Police inspection).
