Blockhouse Bay's latest mural

As I post this, right now there's a crowd of people waiting for a New Zealand flag-shrouded mural to be unveiled by Auckland's Mayor. I, though, felt that the biting wind was way too cold, so got there early, snapped my shots before the veiling, then headed home.

The photo is originally from the Auckland Museum and bears the description of the blockhouse barracks , although the official stand of the  Blockhouse Bay Historical Society is that this is the blockhouse. It may be -- while it's not the classic astyle of military blockhouse as built at the time (the one in Onehunga is an example), this looks sort of like the ones built at the Domain.
