MERCHANTS OF WYNYARD
In 1928, the town of Wynyard was described as follows:
Wynyard has a population of about 1,500 and the municipality of Table Cape, of which Wynyard is the centre, has a population of nearly 6,000. The town is well laid out with well-kept roads and footpaths. It has excellent water service and electric supply, a public library, three public halls, in two of which pictures are screened regularly, seven banks and five churches, the bank buildings and churches being very noticeable architectural features of the town. The town is well catered for from a sporting standpoint, there being two excellent golf courses within easy reach of the town.
The following pictures were published in the Weekly Courier in 1919:
Beautiful pictures. (2018) the butter factory lighthouse still standing just had a paint job and clean the other day. It looks great.
Beautiful old photos. The middle pub has only recently changed its front facade...still recognisable.

I worked at River Don before I was married with Peg Berchree Max Pinner and Roy Reeve who only passed away last year he was over 100
does anyone know when in 1918 the original spencer hospital was opened. 100 years is worth celebrating
Hi Anne, Many thanks for your query. I've posted a response on Facebook and on the Blog page, which I think you will find very interesting.
