Kaiwharawhara Stream in Wellington. This archival photo, in the Alexander Turnbull Library, was taken over 120 years ago and yet already there are signs of human impact on the environment. The beginning of bush clearing is evident on the right-hand side of the image. Today, the stream passes through a densely populated urban area just outside the central city business district.
