This, due to its size and the nearness of the ground's trees, was difficult to photograph. I've been wanting to do so for some time now, though.
I won't rabbit on about the building's history here. There's a lot said about it at the Historic Places Trust site, and University of Auckland.
I'll just say -- if you're from out-of-town, and you want to view one of Auckland's original public gardens, and the still great architectuere, then leave the frisbee at home.
