Land that was occupied and cultivated by local iwi was quickly transformed into a noisy, busy, and crowded industrial town. Based on a small booklet, there is now a slideshow that highlights the changes in the town. Step back in time and see for yourself the changes to the town they called 'The Thames'.
The slideshow is available on Youtube
Below is a selection of photographs from the Slideshow
