Old Caversham [1]

The top photo is a Muir and Moodie from 1905. The bottom photo is from Google Earth in 2009. The white arrow on both images denotes the same landmark - Caversham Presbyterian Church. In the top photo you can see the old railway line crossing horizontally (you need to view the full size download from Te Papa Collections to see it). In the bottom photo the place of the old railway line (closed more than 100 years ago) is taken by the motorway, the advent of which has greatly changed Caversham.
