This picture reminds me of the batanacall gardens

At the races

1950s

Highly Commended entry in the 2012 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt.
Judges Comments: All the excitement and buzz of a day out at the races is here – the busy totalisator, the nifty hats, and hordes of people striding off to watch the next race. The Port Hills, big puffy clouds and crowds of people. The hats might be different but a day at the races in Christchurch was ever thus.

Thanks so much for that Alan, it is fabulous to hear that you treasure something that he built!

And to add to that, everything he built, he built well. In this picture you will see a swing seat against the wall, I still have this seat which he built about 50 years ago.
