This building was a landmark on the corner of Broadway Avenue and Albert Street from 1918 to 1968 when it was demolished. It was the second flourmill on this site, the first being a small wooden building. The business was established by Richter, Nannestad and Co. in 1878 and sold to James McGill of the Manawatu patent Roller Flour Mill Co. in 1902. Seventeen years later it was purchased by John Ireland of The Manawatu Mills Ltd, who sold it on to Farm Products Co-operative Tararua Ltd in 1965. See also A 175/ 232 Ian Matheson Archives
