Where are we at? Four years ago, on 4 September 2010, Christchurch and Canterbury was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. This morning I went back to my old stomping ground.
My old place. It is now a Wilsons Carpark. But our mailbox is still there.
A Castrol ghostsign on Victoria Street.
Stately prows of new building on the corner of Salisbury and Victoria Streets, and one in Durham Street North.
A worker takes a break by the Casino.
The Government Life building creeps lower, with Mike Hewson’s art reflecting its former dimensions.
The Central Library on Gloucester Street.
On the streets you see the conversation between pre- and post-quake Christchurch, between boomtown and ghosttown.
Blossoms and crane on Victoria Street.
