Old Road at Titup


Old Road at Titup today

This postcard showing Old Road as it passes through Titup on its way to Shotover Hill was produced in the 1930s by a local photographer, as can be seen by the amateurish lettering.

The houses on the left, now numbered 101 and 103, were numbered 33 and 35 at this time and were occupied by Tom Barrett and William Kislingbury respectively. Tom Barrett was a “commission agent” (or bookie) and that probably explains the sign in his window. On the right is the Crown & Thistle pub.
