A Lifetime of Living

I originally wrote this book intending to draw people’s attention to changes in lifestyle machinery and motor travel that have occurred throughout my life. The equipment we worked with in those days was incredibly different to what is available in the present day and it never fails to amaze me the changes that have occurred.

A Lifetime of Living
From Golden Bay to Nelson & the East Coast, a working life of over 50 years.

Over my working life, I’ve had many jobs, first starting in a draper’s shop in Nelson as a teenager. I then farmed at Kairuru, Canaan and Marlborough, and went gold-mining up the Howard River before working for the Public Works, driving locies and heavy machinery along the East Coast. Following this, I worked for the Main Highway Board, then as a nurse at Ngawhatu Psychiatric Hospital, owned a grocery shop, logged plantations from Golden Downs and various Nelson areas, and grew tobacco and hops. Finally I spent 10 years working for Waimea County before retiring.

For leisure, I spent time flying, skiing, working with the coast guard and radio, built several houses and spent a period of time owning a small pleasure boat.

Throughout this all, I have seen many changes in working and leisure, especially regarding technology. This is my story about these changes. Happy reading!
