Fuelling a lighthouse coal range

Adding fuel to the coal range in the living quarters at the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, 1967.

One of New Zealand's most popular types of stove was the Shacklock range, first manufactured by Henry Shacklock in 1873. Gas for cookery became available from the 1910s. Cooks unfamiliar with the product could attend cookery classes run by gas firms. The Wellington Gas Company,for example, employed Una Carter to give cookery lessons to its customers.
