Researcher comments/remarks
By the time this photograph was taken all three businesses whose former premises are shown in the photograph had relocated to other parts of Lyttelton and were trading again. Bells Pharmacy converted a house on London Street into new premises. Leslie's Bookshop moved to a room at the rear of the Lyttelton Health Centre on Oxford Street and Lyttelton Sea Foods re-established their takeaway restaurant in a relocatable building on Norwich Quay. This relocatable building was moved from one vacant site to another on Norwich Quay as the first site was in the area which needed to be cordoned off for the demolition of Shadbolt House.
