LOOK­ING BACK

Whangarei Report - - HISTORY -

A lit­tle bit of the coun­try, 1920-style, came to Whanga¯ rei on Novem­ber 11, 1971 for an Agri­cul­ture Week pa­rade up Cameron St. The horse and spring cart in the photo, taken by then North­ern Ad­vo­cate chief pho­tog­ra­pher Warren Spiers, was en­tered by the Whanga¯ rei A&P So­ci­ety which was hold­ing its an­nual Whanga¯ rei Show at Kens­ing­ton Park on Novem­ber 12 and 13 that year. The Sum­mer Show later moved to Barge Show­grounds in Maunu. The show is on this Satur­day at the show­grounds from 9am-4.30pm.
