Devonport Ferry terminal during 1913 strike

Mounted special constables guard the Auckland offices of the Devonport Steam Ferry Company during the 1913 strike. From 8 November special constables were in control of the Auckland wharves, including this terminal where passengers embarked for Devonport. The ferries continued to run throughout the strike. 

On 4 November, before the specials had seized control of the wharves, there was an incident at the Devonport jetty, where carters had loaded cargo on to the Hirere. Strikers forced them to unload the cargo, under threat of being thrown into the harbour.
