The Key To The Cotton Mill?


It has been said that much depends on the availability of inward shipping- from England to Nelson, and on the wharfage rates charged by the Harbour Board, if the Standard-Triumph company is to take over the cotton mill buildings. Port Nelson handles a great deal of overseas shipping during the year - 36 vessels for the last financial year and 44 the previous year - and it has the facilities to handle the cargo. Wharfage fees are another thing, however, but the Harbour Board may resolve this problem with an offer to the company. This photo of the port and the reclamation, gives some idea of the tremendous growth of the area in the last four years.
