The Nautilus on the Avon-Heathcote Estuary in the 1920s

1920s

This craft was built in Auckland about 1912 for Frederick Horace Edwin Chester (1880-1980) who was for more than 25 years superintending electrical engineer for the Canterbury Frozen Meat Company. The boat was involved in war work during World War One (1914-1918) and then sold in 1919 to Harry Nelson Hawker (1868-1947), a baker of New Brighton. He established a passenger service from the Seaview Road bridge to Pleasant Point which lasted for ten years and popularised the reserve as a picnic spot. Original in the Archives Collection: 790
