Suggest it is Waikari, North Canterbury, near McDonald Downs.
Access to the left would lead to the Railway Station.
The hotel on far right is still there but is not the Star and Garter as it
is on Main road further down.
Still a small hospital in the town.
I live in Waikari and yes it may be but I dont remember that large
building on the right side. The Hotel was the Great Northern the
fire brigade burned it down a few months ago for practice!! Also the
Hotel was on the street corner and it certainly doesnt look like it is
in the pic
Also Waikari IS NOT south of Amberley it is 24km north west of
