Upper Rosebank Road Mural

I'm grateful to a very kind friend of mine who regularly gets up as early as the dawn chorus and so offered to take a couple iof snaps of the mural in Avondale which faces onto the Auckland City Council carpark beside the upper part of Rosebank Road (former Brown Street). I can't say who he is (but he and his good lady regularly view Timespanner) so -- hey there, you guys know who you are, so thanks!

The early 1950s scene looks from across on the western side of Rosebank Road, up "Station Hill" (Upper Rosebank) towards the railway goods shed at the top. Our post office building is on the left, and Unity Building on the right.

Usually, there are cars parked here all day, so it's hard to get a good shot of the wall. Luckily, as I said, I have an early riser friend.
