    No reason to move once I’d found a comfy chair in the sun.

    No reason? Not even for Street Chant?

    There remains a rueful grubby sameness for early morning Aucklanders.

    True. Take the train along the Western or Southern lines to see it. But some parts of twenty-first century Auckland – College Hill for example – may never look this grubby again. Photo from 1985.

    Sad to note the passing of John Fields, another photographer of Auckland people and places in the 1960s and 1970s. Fields documented Auckland architecture in his 1971 book 'Victorian Auckland'. This book is worth seeking out, as so many buildings of that era are now gone. There are tributes by Harvey Benge here, and by Ron Brownson here.

    photos of Auckland I had taken, mostly between 1985 – 1989

    The Newmarket Railway Station building looking decrepit in 1988. At the time I was aware of Gary’s work but hadn’t yet seen the The Unseen City, or his photo of the station and tracks that we feature in the post.

    Seems link takes you to my last viewed

    Bang on!

    Thanks for that Myles - I had real trouble reconciling those buildings and that scene with anywhere in Newton, but looking at Pompallier Tce on street view, and seeing the wall and those distinctive roofs, it all makes sense. The steeple on the skyline must be St Stephens church, on the corner of Shelly Beach Rd and Jervois Rd.

    "This Auckland" - a National Film Unit film from 1967 - was recently posted in the NZ on Screen Auckland collection, and puts you right in that time. I don't think it will embed but here's the link.

    There is also a short film made for television in 1967, about Gary and his photographs. It's in the TVNZ archive but isn't online. Perhaps NZ On Screen might like to check it out?
