Papatoetoe scenery

Last year, I went with a friend to Papatoetoe to the South Auckland Rock Club show at the Papatoetoe Town Hall. This year (today) we went back, but this time I decided to take the camera.

Top is a mosaic near the local Citizens Advice Bureau office -- strong graphics and a cool heritage balance (train, Town Hall, and a toi toi for Papatoetoe.

Middle, the old Papatoetoe Railway Station, now serving a new purpose, thanks to the Papatoetoe Railway Station Preservation Trust.

Bottom, the Town Hall itself, now a hall for hire by Manukau City Council. In the days before the 1989 local authority amalgamations, this was a focus for public meetings, like this one for the Red Cross in 1962.
