Our first State House

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

David and Mary McGregor took occupation of the first State House in New Zealand today (September18) in 1937.

The house at 12 Fife Lane Miramar had three bedrooms and one bathroom. The opening attracted a large crowd and a lot of media attention. The house was eventually sold to the McGregors in the early 1950s. They lived there until the early 1980s and are seen in the attached photo in 1978.

Wellington's Golden Mile... Lower Tory St.?

Ingrid from Brooklyn

Would windy lower Tory St really be a desirable street to be in as a 'no car zone' as proposed? I suggest keeping this access street open for cars as it is one of the only a few routes from this area of the city to the southern suburbs....
