There were a few mutters of ''about time'' from onlookers as
an excavator took a day yesterday to demolish two historic
Dunedin buildings that had stood partially collapsed in
Rattray St for three years.
It all started with a 5-year-old boy's joy at a string of
lights; then Stan Callaghan in Christchurch thought he would
add a few more each year, build a helicopter, and not charge
to view as it isn't a cost to 'give pleasure'.
