Hicks Bay freezing works

I noticed this out the corner of my eye and though I had no idea what it was, I found myself screeching to a halt for photos. In prepping this post I’ve found that it’s the old freezing works (which makes sense given proximity to the wharf), a category 2 historic site and now part of a private residence. The works opened in 1921 and closed less than five years later due to insufficient supply of livestock.
