Here is a link to a collection of photos I have, if the link doesnt work search photobucket corubakiwis.

Thanks

Wow, thanks. Your captioning on some of these photos provides really useful information about what various rooms were used for.

Would it be alright if I grabbed one of the 1980s photos (I'm thinking the one looking along the front from the gate) and added to to the main page here?

Sure, I also have a link somewhere with some photos from the 70's taken by some asian students who also lived there while the property was used as as Seminary. I will dig it out.

Very interesting CorubaKiwi-s. What is your connection, may I ask? Best wishes, Andrew Kincaid

Perfectly good photos thread - we had a good dumping of snow here in Christchurch this week so the next day I went over to the Hall and took these photos ... http://smu.gs/JZ9yWb

Great photos, Robert. You have a love for the place. Thanks, really. Has there been any progress, to your knowledge, on the business side? I detected a glimmer of light from one of your previous posts. Andrew

Hi Andrew,
there was a glimmer and things looked very hopeful for a while there but unfortunately the deal fell through 🙁

We are however making some progress in being allowed to organise gradually larger events there ourselves - there was a day-long group photoshoot there a little while ago involving about 40 professional and semi-professional photographers and models (unfortunately I don't have the rights to share what I have of those images ) and a wedding ceremony tentatively booked in a few months time. A local childrens TV show (What Now, for the locals) also recently spent an afternoon pre-recording material with the property as a backdrop.

None of which would have been possible had we not been involved and established this website as a means of contact. So we're pretty pleased to be able to make that small difference in letting the Hall be used for something rather than just sitting there.

Still there is a lack of progress towards a real way* to bring the place back from the edge which can be, to borrow from Karla's recent post, "disheartening".

*someone with both a boggling amount of money and an appreciation for the place, really
