Day 12

Day 12 - 12/01/17 - Meelo

January 12th 2017 – Meelo

It was a beautiful day today down Mountain Road in Outram with Kristyn, Meelo, Odie and Baxter. 🙂

Visiting Amy :)

I had a great time visiting Amy for lunch/movies yesterday. She let me take some random photos so I could get one to use for my photo a day thing. I managed to get a nice one of Alvin but I got a few other beautiful ones. (Click here to see the rest of the gallery). 🙂 It helps that they’re all so beautifully photogenic!

Plus six months later, Frankie has grown into a beautiful and healthy young kitty…

Almost halfway through February 2014 and still going strong with my photo-a-day project.

The foundation stone for the Dunedin cenotaph was laid by the Mayor, H Livingstone Tapley, on ANZAC Day, 1924. Some interesting items were placed in the cavity under the stone, including the official history of New Zealand's part in the war and also Byrne's history of the Otago Regiment, a statement of the bodies of troops that had left Dunedin, and copies of current newspapers. Before the structure itself could be built there was some difficulty in raising the sum required due to the difficult post-war environment. Because of this shortfall in funding, the bronze figures in the original design were left off. The final design took the form of a tall shaft encased in imported Italian Carrara marble. JL Salmond was the local architect and the contract was let in September 1924, at 8420 pounds. The inscription at the base read "The Glorious Dead 1914-1918" with the addition, after World War 2, of "The Glorious Dead 1939-1945". The Cenotaph was unveiled by HRH, the Duke of York, on 17 March 1927, during his visit to New Zealand and is still the focus of ANZAC Day commemorations.
