If you hit the link then pan a bit south-east, you'll see why the bridge wasn't entirely serviceable. And the lake of sewage at the end of Bridge Street which I avoided by use of crafty woodsman skills through the park. Susan, who didn't have the benefit of a childhood spent mucking about in boggy parts of cattle pastures, ruined a pair of shoes in her trek through the woods [we'd commuted separately].
The image layer file is huge and so takes a long time to load up. So you get to watch the pre-quake image slowly be overtaken by squares of more dimly coloured quake pictures...a creeping doom.
- The Arts Centre
- Triage tents at Latimer Square
- The row of shops on Manchester Street that once included the barber shop I frequented (have heard he's fine, thankfully)
- The ruined CTV building
- Sumner landslides
- What was Shag Rock
- Sand volcanoes in Sydenham Park
- Bexley's streets became rivers
- And of course the Cathedral, with Christchurch Press building just to the North-East (the one with the completely wrecked roof)
- One of the reasons I argued for gas price gouging. Check the queue here. Flip around. The gas stations without queues are generally the ones that are closed.
- Lyttelton Time Ball
