Re the Google Earth photo of the Great Barrier Island navy station - the photo shows neither the new or old buildings, but actually shows some more modern private dwellings that are not even on the correct side of Grays Road. The new (well, new in the 1990s at least) and old buildings are further up the hill and on the road that goes to the right at the top of the photo.
its often whats in the background that is interesting
That is one thing in observing and recall changes, you would have noticed it yourself ... classic example, from the viewing platform at Christchurch airport many years back you could see prominent landmarks - example the Canterbury University and the Riccarton racecourse stand and many years back I still recall what seemed to be a vast flat land as you looked out on the Southern Alps ... today everything has grown up hiding those memories.
The Classic book released a few years back 'NAC' by Richard Waugh with Peter Layne and Graeme McConnell, had those step back in time photo's like I was back at and in my comfort spot again, course one photo shows a Viscount over the city .. that was such a recall, think that's the reason they call it the 'Garden City'.
In that book .. most would say this .. I know the seat and the , well its like tracking Naval Bases or keeping memories

I seriously wondered where I put this photo, its much larger than A3/SRA3 print, forgot where I placed it, In between my paper material stocks to flatten and keep it flat, I guessing LN would be the HMNZS Lachlan, I can scan it again for other detail and information, this is at 300DPI .. HMNZS Waikato in dry dock , I don't have a date on the photo.
