Tauranga School Being Moved by Bullocks (1904).


In 1904 the building was moved again to 'a central site where Tauranga Primary School is today at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Cameron Road' ... 'In the days of these remarkable removals, Cameron Road was shell-paved and hilly. Bullock teams took weeks to move the tall buildings intact on huge drays with wooden wheels and axles' ... 'The school building finally located at Fifth Avenue was immensely high-gabled and originally a rectangular structure to which an identical parallel wing was added then a third wing' (Bellamy, 1982, p. 135). Photo: The school being moved by bullocks in 1904 (photograph courtesy of the New Zealand Room at the Tauranga City Library).
