This is the third and final blog post based on the themes in the exhibition.
Transport, Horticulture and Viticulture
A number of Dalmatian families specialised in transport or earthmoving companies. The Lendich family were by far the largest, followed by Vuksich & Borich and then Bogoslav Sokolich.
Marinovich and Sons also owned a fleet of transport trucks which plied the route between Dargaville and Auckland.
