Hartley Webster

buried Waikumete Cemetery

A very old Auckland resident, Mr. Hartley Webster, died at his residence, Mount Albert, yesterday afternoon, at the advanced age of 89 years. He arrived in Auckland in the ship Catherine Stewart Forbes, as far back as 1852, and being one of the first who started the photographic business in this city, did well, his establishment being at the upper end of Queen-street, about opposite the Anchor Hotel. Subsequently Mr. Webster carried on business in Taranaki as a chemist. Upon retiring from business, Mr. Webster settled at Mount Albert, where he has lived very quietly for many years, his sight having failed him. Deceased leaves no children, and his wife died about nine years ago.
