    1. Gedurende skoolvakansie word daar baie graffiti op kaal mure geverf. Winkelvensters loop ook selfs deur

  7. This is a great way to stop the graffitiization of walls, is it not? And fantastic way to tell a visual history. I see the river there too!! Great idea for this challenge, Ineke!

    1. Yes it helps but if they use light colored paint they still put some extra graffiti on it! Did you know there was only a saw mill up the hill where I live? It was next to the railway and that was all.
      The railway was along my road where I am

          1. 1840 – A settler would have to face extreme hardships in those days. My danish relatives came out to Dannevirke as a pioneer, and were faced with inpenetrable forest with which to eek out a living! They were so disgusted that they returned to Havelock North and set up a bootmaker’s shop.

      2. Started 1848 as a rural shopping station and then 1920 it expanded more and more into different town parts. The main farmer had his farmhouse where Trentham Memorial park is today
