Retaining Wall and Wrought Iron Fence, 11 Vivian Street, 2017

2017 View: By Hamish Crimp

This retaining wall constructed of Taranaki andesite, with a low wrought iron fence, is the best example of it's type left in New Plymouth. It is characteristic of retaining walls constructed in New Plymouth in the later decades of the Nineteenth Century.

It was constructed sometime in the late 1890s, probably around the same time a large grand villa (since demolished), was constructed on the site - it is not present in a circa 1893 photograph, but can bee seen in photographs taken soon after the villa was constructed.
