The stories our buildings can tell

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 2 November 2021

Behind every house, every building or manmade creation of bricks or stones is the story of someone who built it and the people who lived in or around them. From the backseat of the family Datsun 180B, Nicola McCloy grew up looking out the window at these buildings on road trips and wondering about the people who lived and worked there. She tells the stories behind stone cottages, churches, taverns and Maori meeting houses up and down the country in her book, Who Lived There? The Stories Behind Historic New Zealand Buildings.
