Our Own Fun : Childhood Memories of Waiuta

Author(s): Les Wright

NZ Gold & Mining History | Secondhand

Waiuta, a township in the West Coast's upper Grey Valley, lasted no longer than 45 years before the gold mine that had sustained it closed. However people who grew up there retain strong and mostly happy memories, despite having little provided in the way of possessions or entertainment. This collection of morethan 30 childhood reminiscences has been put together to mark the centenary of a place where, as kids of that era often recall: 'We made our own fun'.
