The Auckland Branch was invited to join the North Shore Historical Society to listen to Lisa Truttman’s talk about the original old Auckland Gaol and Courthouse that was situated on the corner of Queen and Victoria Streets. John Webster gave a short introductory presentation which included information about the upcoming Auckland Heritage Festival starting on the 1st October–16th October. For further information about the Festival visit heritagefestival.co.nz and copies of the booklet with all the information are available from libraries. Lisa began a project back in 2017 researching the Wai Horotiu Stream and the ‘Queen Street River’ that went down the western side of Queen Street, Auckland and is working on publishing her research in a book around April/May 2023.
