The store at Te Atatu Peninsula. By the 1930s there were about 50 houses on the peninsula and along with a hall, a school and the church there was a general store with Post Office facilities and a petrol pump. "The first post office for Te Atatu was opened on 1st July 1907 as an agency... In June 1955 a small wooden building was constructed... It was used until 1961 when post office operations were moved to leased accommodation. The 1955 building was then moved to East Tamaki." : I. Clulee.
