Young Street

In the late 1980s a New Plymouth Museum employee Robyn Oliver photographed a number of houses in Young Street.

This basket includes a selection of these - from early settler cottages built in the late 19th century to more modern homes.

While some have been demolished, many still remain, although they may look different than they did nearly 30 years ago.
