Description

Earth moving work at the Botanic Gardens, Wellington, circa 1928. Photographer unidentified.

Note on back of file print reads "Wellington Botanic Garden, Glenmore gully (now Glenmore lawn). Glenmore Street is behind the photographer. Through the trees at the top of the photo, Magpie Lawn can be seen in the process of being formed. Spoil from this is being used to fill Glenmore gully. This was part of the larger project which involved widening Glenmore Street & Tinakori Road to conform with the newly formed Bowen Street. The entire frontage of the Botanic Garden was remodelled between 1927 & 1930. The piping of the stream, the filling of the gully and the levelling of Magpie Lawn had been completed by December 1928. The work was carried out by unemployment relief labour." (Note written by Walter Cook, 1991)
