Joshua Carder's house and various scenes at Limeburners Bay. I heard talk of bulldozers totalling some of this but have no idea what's there now - McMansions? A marina? A casino?

I think a digger went through the wooden barge during "development" - I'm starting to cringe when I hear that word. The PS Tongariro stll has quite a presence though. Joshua Carder utilised both.

Thanks to the Crum family and via the effervescent Lisa Truttman of Timespanner blog fame here's Clark's Hobsonville works from the Amalgamated prospectus of 1929:

Is it true that the tunnel from Clarke House was filled in, I wonder where exactly it is. and also if workers ever wrote on the walls.....as people tend to do.

The kilns and pottery seem to go right down to the waters edge......I wonder if that was always typical of factories like this. The pipes and things I guess were shipped off to other places....I can remember something about it in Fire on the Clay. Now I am wondering if there were any sinkings in the harbour!
