1950s: Photos at Awanui

These photos of the former Awanui Radio station appear to have all been taken at the same time.

Judging by the car in one of the photos, they were probably taken in the 1950s or later.

The Awanui Radio site appears quite run down, although it looks somewhat better in later photos.
