These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.

When the Fulton family first arrived in the New Zealand they decided to settle in the country, just outside the bustling, pre-Gold Rush metropolis of 1840s Dunedin.

As their fortunes increased, they decided they would need a city pad, for entertaining important guests and taking part in “the season”, when alliances - both business and personal – would be forged.

In 1865, they commissioned a townhouse in the traditional style, with steep pitched roofs, and oodles of stained-glass depicting their journey from Ireland to New Zealand. Designed by renown Dunedin architect William Clayton, they called it Lisburn House. Read the full story of Lisburn House here.
