Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Dunedin 1 (Commercial): Photo 18

world pictures New Zealand: Dunedin 1 (Commercial)

The problem is that there's a lot of empty space around town. Here's the 1924 home of "The Bell Tea," founded by Norman Harper Bell in 1905. Bell imported tea, repacked it, delivered it by horse and cart, and also exported to the Pacific islands. The company was sold in 1962 to Foodstuffs, a supermarket operator. In 2013 Foodstuffs sold the company to Pencarrow Private Equity, which continues to market Bell Tea. This building closed in 2013, however, in part from earthquake fears. Its buyer seems to have been a little hasty. "It's a bit more daunting, now that I've had time to look at it," he said. Apartments? "I haven't looked at that yet." See the Otago Daily Times, 2 Sept 2014.
