Abstract:

"Waipiata today is but a shadow of its former self. Once a bustling raliway town and busy service centre for the surrounding farms and the nearby sanatorium, in recent times rural depopulation has seen the school, stores, the railway and businesses close. The hotel remains as a favourite stopping off point for those cycling or walking the Central Otago Rail Trail. Old Waipiata brings the earlier days to life with pictures and stories from the 1890s to the 1960s."- Publishers blurb.
