The Tipsy Ladies

On a recent lunchtime ramble I happened along this wonderful wee sculpture in the front garden of a local home.

The story ….. 

It belongs to and is named after three connected (terraced) old wooden villa’s dating to the 1900’s. They got their nickname after they fell into disrepair. They were on a lean, unsafe and threatened with demolition. 

Thankfully they were spared the wreaking ball and were eventually restored to a comfortably habitable condition. 

One of the current residents obviously has a sense of humour!

Just another happy tale of a part of Wellington’s history retained for current and future generations.
