Local historian Leigh Kennaway sent this shot in overnight (addressing me as "Dear Mural Lady". Heh!). It was taken at the corner of Potter and O'Donnell Avenues in Mt Roskill. As he said in his email -- a strange choice of subject, colonial-era villas and cottages, given that this part of the isthmus is primarily post World War II state houses, built for returning servicemen and their families. The 1940 aerials show that precise spot was just open fields back then. Leigh asked: Possibly the original farmhouse in the area? This was part of the local Wesleyan Mission Trust farms property, so -- I don't know. By 1940, if there was an original farmhouse, it had gone. I have a pretty coloured survey map of the area dated from 1923, showing proposed cul-de-sacs which never came to pass.
Very pretty mural, though.
