Kaikohe's history

At the far end of Kaikohe this mural is on the side of one of the buildings. Although it looks a little worse for the wear to me it looks like it symbolizes the town/s history. I see the historical Aperahama Church which was built in 1885 and I see some Maori carvings.



 I was unable to find some information about it but all I could see on the mural itself were some names: V. Whiu, J. Harry, E. Capilli, I. Wilcox and J. Paki so I'm guessing these were the artists.

Linking up with Mural Monday.
