Hi again Gaye

You might also like to try an email enquiry to Otorohanga District Council ... who may be able to help with an actual address for Len and Mary JAKICH for the timeframe you require.  ;)

[There is a link on that site also to the local library who could possibly have additional info. ]

If you are interested in researching the history thereof, there are a number of interesting clips.

Apparently the probable [assuming only one fish shop / restaurant] owner of 1938 was prosecuted for running a large bookmaking/betting business from the back room. Not long after an advert appeared for the lease of the restaurant.

.... are you able to provide the article regarding this prosecution ?   Did it actually occur in 1938 ?

I mention it because there was a prosecution > very similar to the one you have described > which occurred in late 1936.

THANKS Lu, skip reading and stiff hand, my error. Did not mention name, but presumed now dead.

Thankyou Alan ... I just really wanted to clarify though, for the researcher here, that the prosecution > (yes, the man's name is recorded in the article), > had nothing whatsoever to do with Mr JAKICH.  ;)

Hi again.

Not in a position to supply you with a pix of "the house" however it appears that the first aerial survey of the area was undertaken on 23-3-1944 and one photo in the set captures the township of Otorohanga.

See the Retrolens website.  Agree on viewing terms. Select Otorohanga in search, then zoom right into the red Otorohanga dot. Then a side bar will appear of the range of photos available. Clicking on them will shade the big display with the area that photo captures.

http://retrolens.nz/Map/#/1795289.4125169962/5770576.691149227/1796496.8786980868/5771428.247417394/2193/12


In the first photo the railway runs across the photo from middle left to the bottom right corner. The main street follows the railway line.
