Great to see what Oamaru (Waitaki District) was like in the ‘old days’ .
I am fascinated by Tees Street and what it must have been like in days long gone. My understanding is that there were shops all the way on both sides of the block up to Wansbeck and down Wansbeck. The post last week about Glass’s building where the Rogano Restaurant once way heightened my interest.
Could the remaining shops and buildings in this block make a comeback as the focus of Oamaru’s retail shifts slowly back south again and the main street inches towards the Precinct? The Tees Street Cafe could be just the start.
Thanks to Peter Garvan for these historic images.
