Finch: I love looking at old pictures of Wellington. Was born 1990 so missed all the olden day stuff, trams etc. Love looking at the roads which are less populated and the buildings are so much smaller.

While we are talking about history and I do apologise if this is going off topic but..
Does anybody know a website where you can enter your street name and it gives a history about that street and how it was named? Really interested in how my street name got its name, who is it named after? Where did it come from? etc
freitasm: At around 6:55 - 7:10 in the New Zealand promotional movie...
linw: Talk about cringe making!!
Did all the Wellingtonians speak like poms then? I arrived 4 years later and hope I didn't speak like that!!
Kopkiwi: Boy how I wish Wellington traffic was still that sparse.
I would have been great if the films had been published on youtube in HD. As they were done on film I imagine they could get better copies off them. It was amazing to see Wellington without the motorway, it was like a small town, and that wasn't really that long ago. The 80's really changed Wellington.
