The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 65

M. R. Jackson's Saleyards, Victoria Avenue, and St. Hill Street

M. R. Jackson's Saleyards, Victoria Avenue, and St. Hill Street.

These sale yards have been established for a number of years, and occupy a very central position in the Avenue. They are entered by an archway; the offices are on the right as you enter, and the eye is immmediately struck by the size and completeness of the arrangements. The cattle yards and enclosures are numerous, and sufficiently strong to stand any amount of rough usage, and are surrounded by platforms, which enable the spectators to see everything and be out of danger. The sheep yards are flagged, and when not in use are kept beautifully clean. There is also a large sheep dip, and every facility for buyers to examine stock. The sheep and cattle sales are held every alternate Wednesday, special sales for horses, carriages, buggies, harness, &c., being held every Saturday. The agency for the steamboat Huia, is also held by Mr. Jackson.
