Time traveller or just in a hurry?

There’s a jarring anachronism in this photo, as a man inadvertently photo-bombs Oamaru’s Victorian Heritage Celebrations and manages to stand out even more than those whose intention was to do just that.

The celebrations, which began on Wednesday, wrap up at the weekend with the Whitestone Contracting Grand Street Parade and the 23rd Heritage Cycle Championships today, and the Network Waitaki Victorian Fete tomorrow.

The full programme of events this year included about 60 events over five days.
