Newspaper Article 2016 – 100 Years Ago – Iron Pot


February 25, 1916

Daily Telegraph
There is no DT 100 years. It will recommence in September when filmwork is available.

Hawke’s Bay Tribune

The original “Iron Pot”, after which the harbour of that name is said to have been called, was, so it is claimed, recovered a few days ago off Whakaari. It is now in Messrs Ellison and Duncan’s store at Port Ahuriri.

Instead of using water a number of Napier shopkeepers are now sprinkling the footpath in front of their shops with disinfectant. A number of shops are also being scrubbed out with water containing disinfectant.

A motor car ran into and carried away one of the verandah posts of Mr S Tong’s shop in Karamu Road last evening. The car was considerably damaged.
