QUESTION: When was this picture taken?

ANSWER: MAIN STREET KAIKOHE This is one of the earliest photos we have of Kaikohe main street and dates from the late 1880s. A diary entry from a young man called Robert Procter who walked through Kaikohe in 1888 remarked that, back then, there was nowhere to get a meal!!.  a huge difference to today. The Kaikohe Hotel was not built until 1890 and the nearest Hotel was Taheke.
