Poplar Avenue

Photo caption on rear –

“Uncle Sam Wright cut the saplings for Poplar Ave which ran from near Elwood Rd to Ruahapia Rd.
When Mum was little she loved sitting in the front window watching the gig lights flick between the trees.
When I was a little girl it was car lights flickering.
Poplar Ave’s gone & orchards now obscure the view from the old Homestead on Otene Rd.”
