Trevor noted that the new Lodge building in Pakuranga only dates from 1981, so it's possible that the Glido powder was transferred from the original Howick Lodge building (Wellington St, Howick) when it closed. He recalls that several dance teachers operated out of the original Howick Lodge, so it could well have been used for these classes as well as for the dances held there. He recalls Glido powder being used in the 1941 at his sisters 21st at a hall on Eden Tce and atother Freemasons Halls (and other dancehalls) in the 1940s. The item was found at Freemason's Lodge Howick 314, 1-3 Highland Park Drive, Pakuranga and was passed to Alan Bevin, who manages the Freemasons Museum. I have been unable to track how long Glido was produced for.
