Booze truck.

Caption

This picture of Charles Weston and his 1929 Chev was taken outside the Grand Central Lodge in Taupiri St, Te Kuiti in 1964. The 'booze truck' was probably Te Kuiti's worst kept secret during the prohibition years. It was sold, with Mr Weston's Carrier business, to Ken Sorenson and is still in running order.
