You can see why I had to compare this to the Napier building. They're certainly part of the same post-earthquake construction. Very good shot. Greetings from Canada.

Thanks for suggesting that I look for earthquake photos. Very interesting--quite devastating! Our visit to Sydney was also too short, but we thoroughly enjoyed our entire trip, from late August to early October.

I like these unique buildings. They are typical New Zealand buildings!

No these are not typical fo thr buildings of New Zealand, But they are for Hastings and Napier. This is a result of an Earthquake in 1931 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napier_earthquake) when both of these town were distroyed and had to be rebuilt. H
