Work on Tui replacement sign reveals relic from the 1940s
Kevin Tanner spotted work going on to replace the Tui temporary sign which we revealed yesterday.
As the workmen removed the rotten fascia boards, the sign from previous occupant could be seen lurking underneath.
Hobson & Co were printers, stationers, gramophone dealers & book sellers who first set up shop in 1944 in Market Square in Wellington.
The hand-painted sign will soon be back under wraps as the new Tui sign is replaced.
