A recently installed photographic display is bringing a touch of history back to the town centre of Rangiora.
The eight historical images are located on the side of the
BNZ building opposite Cenotaph Corner, and depict iconic moments and buildings
from the town’s past.
Jim Gerard QSO, chair of the Rangiora-Ashley community
board, says the display is an initiative of the board to beautify empty spaces
left as a result of the earthquakes and street upgrades. The images depict a variety of interesting situations, one
of Jim’s favourites shows a huge stack of farmer’s carts knows as ‘gigs’ on
market day in 1910. “…the farmers would go off to the market, have a successful
sale, have a few noggins and my mind just boggles as they try to untangle the
web of gigs at the end of the day.”
Another features elephants parading down High Street on
their way to a circus in Dudley Park. Jim noted, “What I think's important about this picture, is
it's something we'll never ever see in Rangiora again as circus animals are
really a thing of the past. “
Other images show the main street being buried under heavy
snow, a flock of sheep herded through the centre of the town and buildings that
have since been demolished. The photos are on display now, and a larger collection of
historical images is available for viewing at Rangiora Museum.
