Standing the test of time
IN 1955 Alexander McKimm, who had recently founded a successful produce business and a real estate agency, now McKimm’s Real Estate Grafton, contracted Grafton builder Wal Davis to build a house in South Grafton for his family.
Mr Davis, who had also constructed Alexander’s produce store in Queen St on the site currently occupied by Norco, developed a life-long relationship with the McKimm family.
Recently Alexander’s son and grandson, Steve and Angus McKimm, of McKimm’s Real Estate, led Mr Davis on a tour of the house he had built almost six decades ago.
Mr Davis had the chance to review his own handiwork which has well and truly stood the test of time.
