The Nelson Photo News



In Earlier Days


The original water reservoir which once supplied Nelson with water, in the Brook reservoir area. A new reservoir, still used today, was built behind this structure. A few years ago the City Council used the old one as the base for the swimming pool at the reservoir motor camp.


From the Boulder Bank across the port to the hills above Wakefield Quay. At that time the hillside was sparsely settled, in great contrast to the hills today. Our picture on the back page gives a good comparison.
