Pottery wall art at Coromandel Post Office

Last bit of Coromandel township stuff. Spotted  these pottery inserts in the wall beside the entry to the local post office on Kapanga Road.

Depicting rail -- the Driving Creek Railway.


Sheep shearing.


Coromandel's gold mining heritage.


Timber milling (above, and my guess is below as well).

Above, boat building. Below, possibly electricity.

Above, the local fishing.


Above, crop growing (took me a while to realise that's a tractor going around in circles, but without a plough).


 Last, but not least: local pottery making.


  1. These wonderful tiles were made by the Coromandel GP for many years - Dr Diedre Airey.
