Manufacturing in 1867

In 1867 manufacturing was spread through New Zealand’s provinces, with Auckland the dominant industrial area. It had the most manufacturers (102), the most employees (1,041), the most horsepower used (1,165 – or nearly 870,000 watts) and the most capital invested (£246,400). It would shortly be overtaken by Dunedin, which had its manufacturing lifted by the gold rush.
