The old Pumphouse, Waihi
This old pumphouse building at Waihi, a goldmining town in the North Island of NZ, had great sentimental value to the people of Waihi, so a great effort was made to move it several metres from its original location. It is now a part of the focal point of the town, as is the mighty great hole that the gold mining company has dug just near the pumphouses new location.

The photo below shows what the building looks like now.
