Waikanae 1968

Now for a little more recent history. This architectural sketch has Ngaio Road in the left foreground.  Of course, it didn’t happen exactly like this.   The biggest omission from what happened in reality was the civic hall towards the right background.

The library saw realisation more as less as envisaged, but both the Woolworths supermarket (now Countdown) and the Mahara Gallery were truncated, in the latter case quite substantially.
