One of the features of the Jubilee Museum is a classy horse-drawn hearse.
From 1892 it was possible to hire the hearse from James Mitchell for the final ride of loved ones.
The hearse was made in Dunedin and delivered to the local builder in 1892.
In later years, the story goes, it was also used for courting by a member of the Mitchell family.
It was donated by the Hore family.
Those with shallower pockets could use Arthur Ball’s flat deck truck, from which he removed advertising side boards so the coffin would be visible.
