The image of the maid Emily feeding the fowls in the image section was painted by Francis Hodgkins who used to live with her father in the Cranmore Lodge [The gate house of Cranmore]. They had about five acres and milked a cow.
Cranmore, the residence, was situated where the Otago Boys School House is now in Melrose Street. The Lodge, was where the Pacific Park Motor Lodge entrance in Wallace Street is today. It demonstrates to the contemporary ignorant, that poultry keeping in Roslyn was all the go in the 19th century. Everyone kept fowls including the De Beer Brothers and prominent business men. There was a large poultry farm at Littlebourne near Otago Boys High School and also in Maori Hill near where John McGlashan is today. Dr Halliday Scott late of the Medical School photographed a red Pile game cock[dubbed] in the late 19thc at the University residences [faced with red gravel ] by the Registry and the Leith. A complainant from Pacific Street in 2007 likened Roslyn to Vietnam because poultry were an existing use and a rooster crowed nearby.
