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.

Need Black Ginger

Alasdair from Phillipstown

Good wet evening, everyone.

I have read about Black Ginger, that is used in Thailand, for the treatment of weak blood, in men. I tried Funky Pumpkin; never heard of this item. Also Ken's Mart in Sydenham with the same results. Does anyone know offhand where this can be sourced from?
