Can someone help locate these shops? My thinking: the building was probably somewhere on the east (sunny) side of Johnsonville Road. Although it can't be seen here, there is a reflection in the glass door of the dairy showing the vertical sign of the new (1969) Mobil service station, which is in its current location. This suggests the shops were somewhere across the road from it, or at least facing it.
(See Peter Gilberd's comment below - Bill Cutting Place, facing north, seems likely. John Turner's original photo caption read 'Dairy off Johnsonville Rd', which also fits with this.)
The photographs appears in the exhibition 'A walk down Johnsonville Road - Photographs of Johnsonville from 1966-1969 by John B. Turner at Waitohi - the new Johnsonville Library and Community Hub - running from 14 December 2019 to mid-March 2020.
