I just found this in my house, I have not seen anything like it in New Zealand. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about bugs. Is it a concern?

Throwback Thursday: On the buses

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The tram ride to New Brighton was an institution in Christchurch for many decades.
Passengers rattled along the rails to Saturday shopping and summer picnics on the beach.

This changed in October, 1952. Out went trams, in came buses.

Christchurch mayor Robert Macfarlane drove the last rumbling old tram, festooned with banners and bunting. It towed a double-decker trailer, from the top of which the Caledonian Pipe Band played a lament.

In its wake came three of the Christchurch Transport Board's new AEC diesel buses. The band later piped the buses into New Brighton.
