New Lynn mural fading

This used to be a brilliant mural, visible as the trains pulled in to the second station site at New Lynn (the last above-ground one). Sad to say, when it was in its hey-day, I wasn't taking photos as much as I do now. The tagging is engulfing it -- here's just about the last two pieces left that are still visible.

A real New Lynn heritage artwork, it showed the story of the township. Here's hoping something comes along in its stead that's just as good, if not better. More heritage artwork, please!


  1. These pictures are symbolic of New Zealand's history

  2. Yes, I think you're right, with the tagging and all. One could put together a word picture on it about changing times, I suppose.
