A Bridge At Waipawa

Like very many bridges in New Zealand this railway bridge at Waipawa spans a much greater area than the river generally covers. As readers of this and the blog of my last stay will know in New Zealand a lot of buildings are painted with pictures and designs. I cannot before, however, recall seeing a bridge so enthusiastically decorated.

  1. Is there a history / reason behind so many public buildings being painted. Does the tradition go back a long way or is it comparatively recent?
