From our overnight visit to Clyde at Easter I’m now left with just a few photos of cottages and a shot of a creeper with colourful red autumn foliage that was covering a stone wall. Clyde, Central Otago, New Zealand.
Photo below: in the 1870s this cottage was the home of a Chinese man who married a British lady and they had a family of 14 children! You can read more about them under “24. Henry Wong Gye’s Home” at the Promote Dunstan Walk Around Historic Clyde
Photo below: this cottage dates back to the 1860s and was built by the first solicitor in Clyde, Anthony Brough. The large section is an amalgamation of several small allotments surveyed as tent sites during the gold rush.
Photo below: this is ‘Holden Cottage’ sited in the museum grounds. It was rescued from the Cromwell Gorge before the gorge was flooded on the completion of the Clyde Dam. (The Cromwell Gorge was the scene of intense activity in the Otago gold rush back in the 1860s).
