A previous blog post looked at the changes in the area. From streets lined with two storied buildings (mostly hotels), to poppet heads and aqueducts - over one hundred plus years the land use changed as the mining endeavors died at the Thames.
- The Two chimneys (lower right) are in the area of old Golden Crown Street (now called Owen Street), situated where several large hotels were located including the Moanataiari Hotel - now part of the Foundry yards.
- The aqueduct runs from the Waiotahi and is parallel to Burke Street.
- Centre left is the large Governor Bowen Hotel that had an entrance on Pollen and Owen Streets.
- There are still pockets of the poplar trees that we have looked at in previous post.
- The A & G Price Foundry building is far right, facing Beach Road.
