Summary
The W H Heck butcher shop was built in 1926 by the second generation of the Heck family, Wilhelm Heinrich Heck. This was obviously part of his plan to make his 'Pimpama Island' enterprise self-sufficient. It was built, not so much as a retail shop front, than a meat packing facility where meat was dispatched to the surrounding rural districts by unrefrigerated motor truck twice a week. The business at Woongoolba was managed by W H Heck's son-in-law Stanley Haack (who married Edith Heck). W H Heck had purchased some 10,000 acres of cattle country, 'Undullah Station' in the early 1900s, where he reared and fattened bullocks for his butchery. The property was managed by one of his dairymen from Woongoolba 'Mo' Eichmann. The cattle were walked from Undullah to Woongoolba, (which took two days) for slaughter. The slaughter-house was erected in School Road, not far from the sugar mill and near the piggery. One of the specialities of the Heck butchery was German sausage or 'smoked Wurst', which was well known throughout South East Queensland. [Reference source: Jenkins, Lesley. Now and Then, p. 10-11.]
