I dug up a few old negatives I had and had them scanned...
They seem to have degraded a bit since the mid-'90s, so it's good that I got them done now before they get unrecognisable.
Viewing them at a large size is not recommended.



I cannot be sure it's there any more, but it was in Roma.

 Dear Frances

 such sights in the Antipodes are  the daily norm  .  these days it is more likely to be introduced  pinus radiata than the mighty kauri

Raping the land at it's best Annie.

My gripe they cut the "renewable resource" pine right up to the roadside.
They should leave a blanket, for a season it is a real eyesore for our country until the new growth comes through.

Love riding down tree lined roads, highways and through canopies.
Better for the tourists.

Yes, selectedgrub, there are roads like that in England too.  Sometimes the canopies meet in the middle of the road and it is like driving down a tunnel.  Magnificent.

Did someone really make a postcard out of denuded forest?

 Yes  , the the [ Rotten Scoundrels]  in the timber monopolies that squeeze every inch of NZ for their own selfish ends of  their pinus  have a lot to answer for .  

Thank you  Master Grub for  a meandering reminisce

Dear  Frances,  we have a few roads  in NZ like your own classic country lanes , though not nearly enough.  [ I may be had up for treason but I am deeply ashamed to say NZ history is plastered with  postcards of  tree stumps and cleared country side ( one day these pictures of paddocks of sheep may be  labeled as Kiwiana Victoriana erotica)  Embarrassed )]

 Here is  the abandoned Bridge to Nowhere - built but never used.

 I have only seen it in the distance as a child. Mr Grub may have  had a closer encounter. If we ask him  prettily he may have some  photos to prove it happened

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_to_Nowhere_%28New_Zealand%29

 we shall have to suffice in the meant time with these stolen tourist shots







Near the Bridge to Nowhere







Most of the townships along the river side have been abandoned

Oh my!

For many years I wanted to visit New Zealand.  When I was at school I did a project on it for some reason that I now do not remember.

 Dear Frances , you would be more than welcome  in our fine country

 Here are some of our finest accommodations  for  conviviality and hospitality in our many great centres of  metropolis

Waikino


 Taranaki



houses like these with gables, verandah and lattice fret work would have originally been more expensive homes with add ons and decoration as the owner became more affluent.  Now they lie falling and fallow , many having been used as hay barns and sheep pens by later  owners often descendents of  farmers homes were built for.


 Happy Valley , Island Bay wellington

Oooooh. Love abandoned/derelict places.

I got a photo of that "school of mines"
Bit more overgrown now.
There is a photo in thread in the "Geographical". http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,37426.0.html

I would have to hunt through the family albums.
Nothing through my camera.

Thanks for sharing Annie.

BEAUTIFUL photos!!!!
REALLY makes me want to jump the pond for a visit even more!!!!!!

Makes me a little sad that I've been touring all the little mining towns here, since I was knee high to a grass hopper, and never taken a photo of some of the amazing places/people/things Cry
