New Zealand Herald,   24th December 1874
At 8 o'clock p.m., on 27th Nov., a fire was observed io be burning furiously at Devonport. The building which proved to be on fire was a large stable, the property of Messrs. Alison Brothers, butchers.
It was a new building, situated near the Naval Depot, There was a considerable quantity of hay in the stable, and this, and the building which was destroyed, would not be more than covered by £200. We believe no insurance had been effected on the property.
The cause of the fire was probably the spontaneous combustion of the hay stored in the loft.

NORTH SHORE HISTORY by David Verran
from CHANNEL North shore's monthly magazine
In 1881, two brothers, Alexander jnr.(1846-1923) and Ewen Alison (1853-1945), founded the Devonport Steam Ferry Company, and Ewen continued to manage the ferries until 1934. That company’s ferries were the main means of transport for North Shore residents wanting to travel to and from the City side of the Waitemata Harbour until 1959, with the opening of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
