The royal visit today necessitated Cambridge Farmers Market giving up its prime spot on Victoria Square for Leamington Domain. A most picturesque relocation. And yes, there seemed to be a steady stream of customers given, I understand, the location was only firmed up during the week.

The first recorded reference to a bowling club in Leamington was in the Waikato Independent on the 10th of February 1921, when there was a move to form a club.

Leamington New Zealand – Band rotunda 100 years old ctd.

Leamington Domain band rotunda

Leamington Domain band rotunda

Two photographs taken 50 years apart – I’m guessing – the black and white would seem, by the clothing, to be WW1 time – well, during the early to mid nineteen tens anyway – and I think comes from a postcard. The colour slide is from around 1960 – from the dress and the hats. Both show the band rotunda in its original position – some 100 metres from the present site. Our POV, similar in both, has Scott Street behind us – looking almost directly east – the current netball courts would be off in the top right of each photo with the present Leamington Bowls building in front of the band rotunda where the tennis courts are in the older image and on the far edge of the bowling green in the 1960s photo.

Update 23/5/2010: Hold that thought – I have just been informed that I might be wrong about the date of the black and white photo – could be in the late 20s?? I shall do some more research.
