1 Trent Street: Preliminary Property history
The earliest plan the AWHS have on file for this area comes via MurrayGittos, from possible National Archives records, and would appear to be partof the layout and property requisition plan for the “Kaipara-Puniu Railway” in1878. The red arrow I have superimposed points to the approximate line ofTrent Street, which became known as Station Road after the railway wascompleted in 1880 (and may have been the original Station Road. For somereason, the part of “Manukau Road” or Blockhouse Bay Road now, waschanged to Station Road before the beginning of the 20
century). Whilethere are some structures indicated on the plan, there is no certainty that anyof these in the Trent Street area are dwellings. Indeed, as was practice at theother tannery in the district (Garrett’s, at Waterview), the land to the north ofthe railway line may simply have been used for either (a) holding stock, or (b)as a buffer against close land development that would bring complaints whichwould, of course, force a closure of the tannery (this closure occurred anywayin 1883-84.)
