In a number of locations in the Cromwell Gorge some remnants of farm or orchard properties can still be found today. This contrasts with my earlier portrayal of the Gorge as a sterile barren place. The use of the historical imagery in georeferenced form is driving these discoveries.
The first two photos are the maps from the historical and current aerial views and the last image is what is on the ground. In other words the extensive trees seen at a particular location at Waenga.
