Old Photos

WCC Archives have digitised some more old photos of the Cemetery. Here we gaze over the playing courts of Cardinal McKeefry School and the beginnings of Ian Galloway Park (previously a tip) towards the eastern slopes of the Cemetery. You may know this area as “Gum Gully” – today it is largely concealed by the gum trees that were planted to shield the residents of Wilton from the “unsightly” view of the Cemetery.

1983 Views, soldiers graves, crematorium, main driveway. Text on slide: Karori Cemetery SEP 70 CEM 007.
