Asylum on control boxes

These photos from the corner of Carrington and Great North Roads in Pt Chevalier were taken by Leigh Kennaway (thanks very much for the permission to put them here, Leigh!)  Showing the main part of the old 1867 asylum building (now UNITEC's Building 1), plus some images of nurses taken, most likely, from Auckland Museum collection images -- I reckon this is great. Pt Chevalier isn't ashamed at all about its connections with the hospital, and this is showcasing heritage in a very public way. Well done!
