Naming Cambridge New Zealand again and again and again

Crossing Karapiro Hydro Dam

We are at the western lights, on the Maungatautari side of Lake Karapiro, waiting for opposing traffic to clear the one lane that tops the hydro dam so we can cross to the Karapiro side and Karapiro Hydro Village. Though this is not the purpose of this photograph. I’ve talked about the concept Township before.  And of course we are launching forth into that disagreeable season of the Big Little Town or is it Little Big Town promotion that Fieldays inflicts upon Cambridge once a year. Grr.

My day galleries. January 2011 galleries. Today’s gallery.

Today, tomorrow and Sunday: 28th, 29th & 30th of January 2011.

602 Maungatautari Road, Lake Karapiro, Cambridge New Zealand.

Photos taken in the boat park at KRI # 2, this afternoon as the well oiled machine of volunteers processes hundreds of young rowers, representing schools and clubs, onto the water to race the 2000 metre Lake Karapiro course and then back off the water to the busy boat park behind. The safety of rowers is of constant concern and each boat inspected – particularly the footwear of each rower. Footwear is attached to the boat and must allow for immediate and unimpeded release of the feet in the event of a capsize. As I over heard Roger Milne explain to one crew, whose setup exceeded the 50mm mandated safety tolerance, it is like trying to remove gumboots without the purchase of a step or your toe at the heel of the boot. The difference between being trapped under a boat by your feet or a straightforward dunk and escape to the surface.

Submerged Histories: stories underlying Lake Karapiro

In 1947, layers of history disappeared beneath the water’s surface of the newly formed Lake Karapiro. Life changed radically for the people whose lives were defined by the waterway.

See this fascinating exhibition of historical photographs lovingly preserved by those who worked and lived along the stretch of the Waikato River now known as Lake Karapiro.

As I work on the KWTJubilee some related gems have been turning up – this selection of photos from the Karapiro Hydro Dam construction in the 1940s from a local family album. Roll over each image and read the captions from the back of each snap (52mm (approx.) square contact prints – a Box Brownie of some sort I’m guessing). Thanks to John Fletcher and George Ve Vorms.

Just after 11 o’clock on Saturday the 5th of October 1985 this table cloth was used for the centennial cake cutting celebrating 100 years of education in Whitehall, Karapiro and Taotaoroa districts. In September 2010 the same cloth – with updated embroidery – will serve a similar purpose at the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools 125th Jubilee.
