Auckland Harbour Memorial

The Auckland Harbour Board Memorial has a story all of its own.  The memorial  was the first erected in New Zealand in 1915, however in 1969 the Memorial was put into storage when the Auckland Downtown Shopping centre was being developed and there is lay until 1999 when it was discovered in Shed 51 on Auckland's wharf in a state of disrepair.  The story was reported by Tony Wall in the NZ Herald and rather than me regurgitating his words you can read the article if you follow the link below.  The Memorial was finally put back on the Auckland waterfront in 2000.
