Glenorchy Store Day Book – Overview

The Historic Wakatipu website has within it’s archives the original Day Book for the Glenorchy Store. It is a remarkable survival considering the period covered by the journal is from January 1885 to October 1894. While worm and silverfish damage has somewhat fragmented the document it is however, complete and all pages are clearly legible.

The day to day purchases of more than ninety different individuals or mining partnerships living or operating at the Head of the Lake are recorded within the Day Book. This includes:

– The sale of perishable goods, poultry, livestock & feed and other basic food items

– The rental of farm machinery and grazing

– The trading of pelts and labour and numerous other transactions.
