Highbury Theatre Hinemoa Street Birkenehad
The band rotunda at Birkenhead Wharf, Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead
This Mural was painted on the wall of the ASB building in Highbury, how many of you remember it.
The Mural depicts the early Gum-Digging days of Birkenhead and
features, on the left, a Blacksmith and two Gum-Diggers, one of whom is scraping and cleaning gum in front of his sod shanty.
The central scene portrays Mr Hellyer, who ran a still, and also a sailor, who seems to have taken a rather indirect route to Lucas Creek where it was [assumed] that the best water was to be found.
On the right are two more Gum-Diggers at work, and the once
flourishing Kauri Timber Industry is symbolised by the Trees and
Bullock Team in the background.
The tree holding the direction signs was a local landmark.
