Circa 1900 See full details
Said to be Charles Harwood's transport fleet at his yard in Rostrevor Street. In 1897 Harwood sold his Coaching & Livery Plant in the stables said to adjoin the Commercial and Hamilton hotels. He advertised that he would continue with ordinary carting, special station trade, and heavy wagon work. Harwood owned land in the block bordered by Rostrevor Street, Anglesea Street (then Selkirk Street), Liverpool Street and Victoria Street. In late 1909 Harwood formed a new street through his property, between Rostrevor Street and Liverpool Street. That street was the genesis of Harwood Street. The following year Harwood subdivided his property into 36 sections of about an eighth of an acre each, to be sold on his behalf by the Farmers' Auctioneering Company. Charles Harwood died on the 27th of June 1938 at his late residence, 18 Rostrevor Street.
