Historical Notes: In 1850 John Plimmer towed the wreck of the American ship `Inconstant' to the foreshore near Lambton Quay, Wellington, and built a pier to it. He established a warehouse and auction rooms there which became known as 'Noahs Ark'. (See Encyclopedia of New Zealand, edited by McLintock Vol 2, page 787.)
