An unusual Monument

These large silos dominate the small New Zealand town of Waimate. When you live in a city, you are used to lots of tall buildings and don't really notice their height, but it was difficult to miss these silos looming over Waimate. What is a strange and haunting monument now, was obviously once a source of local pride.

Oh, and if you are in Waimate you should also visit the Savoy Tearooms. I wish I had a photo of them as well as they are very much a step back in time. There are even 1950s pictures of Queen Elizabeth on the wall.
