Going East: 2013 in pictures: November

A change of office for me has meant a change of scenery.

Linwood

I now head to work east – I’d call it Linwood but postcode finder calls it Woolston. My new walking route takes me close to the Avon River, whichever way I go. And in places – like here, down on Whitmore Street – it is beautiful. IMG_0202 IMG_0388

Stanmore Road

Here is the Richmond workingmens’ club being demolished.

Town

The city still draws me in. I like to check out what is happening. I was in town for a meeting on Friday 8 November and spotted that Lichfield Street had re-opened – that stretch between Colombo and Manchester Street.

The famous mannequins of Frontrunner.

Christchurch City Libraries has a page on the history of Strange’s.

And more views of town: Old Millers/CCC on Tuam Street.

I find the wildflowers on the corner in Latimer Square so beautiful. Nature does it best.

And the Whare in Cathedral Square by Chris Heaphy also uses flowers and plants to mitigate against greyness and demolition.

Open Day at the historic Colombo Street bridge. SCIRT explained the repairs and did a great job involving the kids.
