Artist's Description

A board outside the Stone Store in Kerikeri, Bay Of Islands, North Island, New Zealand, setting out how much it cost to build.

Camera used: Pentax K30

The Stone Store at Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands is New Zealand’s oldest surviving stone building.
Part of the first Church Missionary Society station in New Zealand, the store was designed by John Hobbs to replace an earlier wooden store house. The Stone Store was erected between 1832 and 1836 by mason William Parrott, carpenter Ben Nesbitt and a team of Māori. Construction was of sandstone from Australia, local volcanic rocks and burnt shell mortar. Iron ties and window bars were forged by James Kemp, (though these unfortunately corroded the sandstone). Initially it had a wooden belfry on one side. (Wikipedia)
