Our pretty township is still on the mar oh of improvement, in spite of the depressed
times, the latest addition to Waketield being new business premises for Mr Eliab Baigent, which are yet in course of erection. The building will be a large one of two storeys. The lower storey will be used as a boot and shoe shop, registrar's office, store, and workrooms; the upper floor will be one large room, very suitable for an assembly hall, photographic gallery, &o. Mr Baigent is to be highly commended for his pluck and enterprise in erecting such a fine addition to our township, and his many friends in Wakefield wish him every success in his new venture.
Eliab married Charlotte VERRY, daughter of Charles VERRY and Rhoda Ann PAGE, in 1874. (Charlotte VERRY was born on 19 Dec 1855 in Wakefield, Nelson, New Zealand and died on 10 Jan 1942.)
