The highest bit
Thanks to those of you who took a punt on the highest residential street in central Dunedin and also the highest house in that street.
I can now reveal all. And it's not Halfway Bush. Drum roll please.
The Dunedin City Council's chief information officer, Tracey Tamakehu , explains:
''We have done an analysis of the heights of suburban Dunedin streets above mean sea level, with 'suburban' defined as being within the urban residential planning zone.
''The highest suburban street in the Dunedin City Council area is Eton St, in Hyde, which is up to 379m above mean sea level.
''In 'central' Dunedin, Grigor St, in Brockville, is the highest suburban street, reaching up to 304m above mean sea level. Parts of nearby Dalziel Rd reach higher, but the highest point of Dalziel Rd with residential properties on it is 303m.''
A pat on the back to anyone who guessed that correctly.
That persistent exhibition ...
Well, this has been one discussion that has not gone away. I'm talking, of course, about the 1925-26 New Zealand and South Seas International Exhibition held on Logan Park, reclaimed from its predecessor, Lake Logan.
Bill McDonald writes about a band photograph we published a month or so ago
''Basically, a military band is brass with the addition of woodwinds and some other instruments. The Argyles would also have had a pipe band, but that would have still been with the regiment wherever it was based at that time, and they would be referred to as the 'pipes and drums' of the regiment not the 'pipe band'.
''I also think copies of that photo may have been given to pipe and brass bands around Otago. There was one in the former band hall of the Milton Pipe Band but where that is now I have no idea, as the band no longer exists and a lot of stuff like that may have been disposed of.''
John White, of Belleknowes, has seen a curious photo of the exhibition, taken from what is now the Caledonian Ground.
''I am intrigued as to whether this object is an amusement slide or was used to get rock for the formation of the exhibition area.''
To finish off today, just a few classic bits of balderdash saved by one of our subeditors.
1. ''It is dove-tailing with what is required on the coalface.''
2. ''Way-finding signage.''
3. ''If we clip it on to the front end of the process we can reduce the contention at the back end.''
