This might be a red herring, but Bennett & Woods were the Australian distributor for Kelvinator in the early part of the 20th Century.
They were a leading company in the motor trade here in Australia, but more spare parts than new cars.
Wasn’t Kelvinator part of the Nash brand?
Coincidently, B&W were the Australian distributor for Harley Davison from 1915 and BSA motorbikes.
(Nothing to do with Nash, just something I found while researching around this photo)
I must admit, I thought the boxes looked a little small for cars.
Rupert, do you know who the NZ distributors were for Kelvinator before Fisher & Paykell took the line on the late 30s?
I wonder if Bennett & Woods had an NZ Division?
Again, I may be way off on this.
