In a letter written by Nan Tustin 26 May 2003
Another house that stays in my memory belonged to Mr and Mrs Balls. It was down towards the end of Park Avenue and had a turret. That fascinated me as a child and when taken to visit I was sometimes allowed to go up the narrow spiral stairway to look out the windows. This was a very special treat. The house was eventually moved to Garden or Gordon Road and the turret removed

Evening Post 8 November 1910
A start has been made by the Hutt County Council with the construction of wire crates in the Hutt River, near the Taita, for the protection of the banks of that river. It is hoped that the protective works will prevent the flooding of much valuable land at the Taita. Messrs. Job Mabey and Balls are giving the use of horses and drays, and also suppying a portion of the material, and the Council is providing the labour and the balance of the material.
