Rangawahia Hall

On a backroad somewhere in the Manawatu area we found the Rangawahia Hall which is
about all that is left from a town that is no more. 
Laying along the edge of the building and dotted around the side were these tiles, obviously made by children, that tell some of the stories of the town's past.
Among hundreds of results about the hiking trails in the area, this article is all that I could find about them.

This is fascinating - I could spend hours studying these and theorizing about the lives of the people who made them. It does make me a little sad that installations like these lose their history if no one makes a point of recording the context!!! Thanks for sharing with us!

What a wonderfully creative school project and a great legacy for the whole pace to enjoy. It must have taken a huge amount of work. Love the riding to school on the pony!

This is so sweet! I loved seeing the childrens art work, it looks well preserved. I think the local people will enjoy coming and looking at it.

I enjoyed looking at each tile artwork made by such creative children.

I like these naive azuléjos. It's a great idea to have given children the possibility to express their feelings and poetry in that way
