Corner dairies were the centre of life in the suburbs on weekends from the 1940s to the 1980s when most other stores were closed. The Wellington St dairy in Freeman's Bay, Auckland, is seen here in 1980. Dairies often had prominent advertising on signs or walls for one of the products they sold – in this case Bushells tea.
