This old building was the home of Watson Victor Scientific Supplies in Wellington and when they moved out it was taken over by the New Zealand wool Testing Authority. A Manager, a physicist and two technical officers [aka DIY and home handymen can do anything blokes] were employed and I was one age about22. This back part was WTA and where I first had a job designing machinery and processes for testing raw wool - a ground breaking bit of work by the Department of Agriculture of NZ, of which WTA was a statutory off-shoot. The manufacturing of this plant and equipment, later, once it had been designed and NZ wool exporting ports fully set-up, gave me my first employment as a self-employed engineer, fed my family, paid off a house, bought a few nice trail-bikes over the years and led to a fascinating career. I got the job working here whilst part time at University but left 'varsity to work full time - it was so much fun!! How many jobs can you say that about now? Finally completed my degree in 1983 - 20 years after starting it. Just a lousy old BSc but that was fun too!
