Napier was destroyed in an earthquake in 1931.

So, when they rebuilt, they did this......everywhere.

You're bringing back memories of my visit in 2014/15... visited a lot of the same places.

If I was 30 years younger I'd emigrate there, but they won't have me now as I'm too old/not rich enough!

Get ready to be reminded a lot!

I love Deco. I just walked round Napier with my mouth open. Half the images I took are going up on Alamy- just extraordinary..

OK just one more for now, there are 98 but everyone else may get bored.

Just realised this lot will take me over 10,000.

Too bad

We now have son/D in L and granddaughter there. We'd be there like a shot if there were a way. It's a better place.

I took a recently purchased Samyang 8mm fisheye to relieve trolly pushing duties shopping boredom 🙂

Steve, I haven’t looked at your keywords but be sure to include, grocery cart and carts.  That’s what we call them in the U.S.   I think this could sell on this side of the pond 😃

Hi Michael, thanks for that. I’ve added the keywords and I’ve amended the description. Your suggestion got me looking so, amongst others, I found the American term ‘Private Brand’ for  ‘Own Brand’ which is the equivalent term we use in the Uk 👍

I'm sure it has but it's vanishingly unlikely

Meanwhile, on with the show.

an-asda-supermarket-trolley-half-full-of    And it seems everything in the trolley is encased in plastic :( , maybe include something regarding that in your keywords?

when you said you loved art Deco i was hoping you made it to Napier....  love the place...first visited in 92, when they were starting to realise that what they had deserved preserving...

Hate that the T&G has a Starbucks, but hey!

same here (though the 14/15 for me reads as : 92, 03, 04/05, 08, 15, 16    i love the country).  one of my perverse joke comment  as a Canadian from Brexit move was that it would force a form of free movement within the former empire , and i'd move tomorrow...

sadly recycling is not enough. reducing packing has to come first... great image for that illustration... why do bananas with their own wrapping need more?

 

could be great use for image...

Never noticed, so many places in NZ to get a nice cup of coffee.

Here's one where you can't really see the Starbucks.

Cheers. Dry martini at the Masonic.

:-).  I only mainly noticed as it was an addition the second time i visited... 

 

by the way, had you only uploaded one, "Masonic Martini" would be an Alamywhack. 😁

i agree the images all deserved to be there (and i still think when you have all the versions, it's still close enough to an Alamywhack) 

 

don't stop on my account (though in fairness i've been stalking your portfolio since you came back. )  

Taranaki, Ruepahu or Ngauruhoe?

I wonder if the recent cold snap in Vancouver killed the batteries on this small electric car (Electra Meccanica Solo). I guess this one might have been a good fit for the current "irony" challenge. 😁

 

P.S. We're back to rain now. 😣
