FIND THESE STEPS – Right beside the bus tunnel at 106 Pirie Street, Mt Victoria.
These steps seem to have drawn attention in 1929 by someone else who cared about Wellington steps –
These may be the other steps – “now broken boards” – further along the track in the Town Belt.
The Pirie Street steps are along side the bus tunnel, constructed between 1905 – 1907 with the loss of the lives of three workers.
Pirie Street is named for one of the directors of the New Zealand Company, Sir John Pirie, who also became Lord Mayor of London in 1841.
Now the Pirie Street steps are guarded by alert and watchful eyes.
