Pork-product labels

Some delicacies of earlier times are still eaten today. Boiled beef and brawn were tinned by the West Coast Meat & Produce Export Co. Ltd, Pātea, between about 1890 and 1920. Brawn is pork jelly, usually made from the boiled head of a pig. The ox tongues were from Mitchell & Richards, Whanganui.
