WHANGANUI: AN ARCHITECTURAL TREASURE TROVE!
As many of you know, my children are fanatical cricketers! Amie, at 14 years, is starting to build a reputation for herself as a cricketer for the future. As such, my family and I often travel to watch her play. Earlier this month, we journeyed to Whanganui to do just that! The cricket was fantastic! But never one to leave my ‘designer’s eye’ at home, I was astounded by the depth of architectural history around every street corner in Whanganui. From post-colonial, modernist and art deco to name a few, Whanganui has it all! I couldn’t resist the pic of a Ford Falcon in lime green. It seem’s that the locals are not only surrounded by the fabulous history of architecture that characterises Whanganui, but also know how to drive it in style!
