Bank of New Zealand
Bank of New Zealand, Main Street, Pahiatua. This Bank is the only one with a branch at Pahiatua. Prior to 1891 the business was done by the Woodville branch sending an officer to Pahiatua twice a week, but in that year a branch was opened in the town and Mr. George Innes appointed manager, which position is still held by him. Mr. Innes is very popular in the district, and does much for the welfare of the Bank's business by his ever courteous and obliging manner.
