Focus on glories of past
By John Gibb
Some of the glories of Dunedin’s engineering heritage will be highlighted at a transtasman conference being hosted in the city this weekend.
Among engineering treasures some of the 120 people attending the engineering heritage conference will be able to examine are recently discovered plans of the city’s Mornington cable car system, which began operating in 1883.
Engineering heritage-related displays are being staged at the Hocken Library, the Otago Settlers Museum, the Otago Museum and the National Archives Dunedin office. The recently-discovered Dunedin cable car plans are not on display at the Hocken but can be viewed on request.
