postcards from nz – art deco

20140325-100506.jpg

Art Deco architecture, or Art Deco anything really, is quite beautiful. Classic lines and shapes that bring to mind an iconic era in history. You can be lucky to spot a nice building or two, or even three, around towns and cities in general, but here in Napier you are spoilt. There’s a couple of strips around town where every second building takes you back in time. There’s a few that are sadly a bit mismatched with modern awnings and shop signs reminding you that it’s 2014. But some are pure old school from front door to pressed metal awning ceilings. And they are just beautiful! What a delightful treat it is to wander the pretty streets of Napier. Jolly good show old chap!
