A phone box

I found this very amusing... it is not too often now that you see someone in a phone box using the phone. With mobile phones so accessible now, this is just a rare sight.

Saturday Signs: Chain fitting

These signs are periodically placed over the Crown Range. The Crown Range goes between Queenstown and Wanaka, a scenic way to get to Cadrona Ski Field in winter.

The same old building....

... but in colour. The same building looks so different between the two photos. See yesterdays post for the same photo, but in black and white.

Saturday Signs: Old Cromwell

The construction of the Clyde Dam and subsequent filling of Lake Dunstan in the 1980's brought major changes to Cromwell. Gone were two wild rivers... but there is now a beautiful new lake with many shoreline amenities. Acres of orchards were lost... but Cromwell has since become the fruit and wine centre of the south. Cromwell's original commercial area was drowned... but there is now a pleasant new town centre with modern facilities. However, the old town centre with its historic bridge has not been forgotten!

The Arrow River

The Arrow River. Arrowtown is on the banks of the Arrow River. This river is a tributary of the Kawarau River and feeds into the Clutha River. Just such pretty scenery.
