Early days in Tawa

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Dirt paths and long stretches of farm­land are a far cry from Tawa to­day.

In this pic­ture of wa­ter be­ing con­nected to new houses in 1957, Tawa was still a de­vel­op­ing com­mu­nity.

The first at­tempt at hous­ing sub­di­vi­sions in Tawa were in 1896 and in 1906, but it wasn’t un­til about the 1940s and 50s that Tawa grew strongly and its ru­ral character largely dis­ap­peared.
