I need to 'break the drought' or 'close' the blog - in the meantime here is an interesting card that was for sale on trademe a short time ago. (see right)
The enlarged view below, shows that the photo was taken from the north west corner of Mary and Pollen Street, just north of the South African War Memorial.
Its an unusual view, that looks at the shops on the eastern side of Pollen Street, the named ones are J Danby's shoe shop and W S Wylie's.
Well thats all for now. If you are researching Thames history or a family line - email and I may be able to help. In the meantime I have a few sources online - there are some lost links, but many still work. Examples are: Electoral Rolls, Street Directories
Also from this blog you will find pages devoted to the local cemeteries and schools.
Need some help researching your family in Thames, let me know.
