    Vintage Memories - another type of ticket, some signs and the man to push you .

    Borrowed from the Auckland Harbour Bridge Facebook Page - they were posted on Timespanner - another History Group about Auckland..
    Taken at the time the Southbound Tolls were removed - No tolls and no tollgates either, on those lanes .

    Article from the Herald in 1972

    Northbound Tolls didn't go until the 1980's - People living on the North Shore had to pay to get home.
    The Police also found the Tollgates a very convenient place for a Breathalyser Check as the cars were travelling slowly [ usually ].

    The Auckland Harbour Bridge Authority - used a variety of vehicles to rescue / push stranded or broken down motorists.
    The earliest were these ; my own photo from 1963

    Registration was Five Pounds Two Shillings and Sixpence [ $10.25 decimalised - compares with $102.98 as an example of a Current [ recent ] Registration.
    Warrant of Fitness Receipt and one of the Receipts for the purchase.

    Did that Club become " Hamilton Car Club ",?? would like to know..

    No mention on the Hamilton Car Club website or Facebook page - the " About " section has virtually no History although the Club [ HCC ] was formed in 1949.

    Was it under that name or ?? - More work to do !!

    Motoring Memories ..

    Included among the L J Tuffey receipts and card in the above post #123 was also this.

    An Invoice from Mission Bay Service Station - and on the back a hand drawn map of how to get there from the Southern Motorway.
    They had built the first part of the North Western Motorway Point Chevalier to Rosebank Road in 1955, and seem to remember the Southern Motorway first section, ran from Newmarket [ not the Viaduct ] near Market Road to Mt Wellington. This was, was this ? built before the NW Motorway ??

    The Mission Bay Service Station was apparently owned by the same famliy or had some connection with Long Drive Motors -according to Ewart Stronach who worked at Long Drive Motors at the time.
