Please visit The Weekend in Black and White for more gorgeous B&W photography.
Auckland’s old Ambulance Station on Pitt Street, now converted into shops
Matakohe, at 2 hours drive north of Auckland, is famous for its Kauri Museum.
But the Post Office was a no less beautiful and quite a photogenic sight!
To mark the end of the Auckland Heritage Festival I give you this true Auckland charmer on K Road.
In 1926, the Kings Theatre, sitting a block back on what was then France street (now Mercury Lane) became a cinema and this narrow structure was built to provide access from K Road. Later on it was for many years a fruit shop and these days beautifully restored is home of “Handmade Burgers”. I learned all this on a fascinating Heritage Walk with K Road Historian Edward Bennett.
