Of domains we have four. Cambridge, Leamington, Horahora and Karapiro. Leamington Domain is bounded by Wordsworth, Scott, Raleigh and Tennyson Streets and includes a children’s playground, bowling club, netball courts, roller skating rink, camping ground, large green space used for cricket, golf practice and walking the dog and band rotunda. I had to spend the day indoors today so have fallen back on an image prepared earlier! Photograph made 17/2/2010.
Ann Benson and Noeline Penfold Leamington Art Group members divide up the birthday cake which Your Cambridge News editor Mark Nogaj had cut moments earlier.
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.
The cake cutting is at 1pm, today, 22/5/2010.
