#1985 ... Back Bencher rebirth

The Back bencher Pub in Molesworth Street has sadly had a couple of fires ... and is now undergoing a complete refit ... the inside has been gutted and the publicity poster on the outside wall changed to reflect the changes ... and the hassles of repair!

#1973 ... Mojo Man

Grace in RED (the fashion student and a fund-raising ninja) and Dan from Mojo Coffee, Old Bank Arcade.  Rumi who captured the image was searching for a guy to create the scene ... most ran away ... but not Dan the Mojo Man. Here he is showing a lot of personal mojo with a RED rose. THANKS TO RUMI FOR AN INTERESTING SHOT.

#1966 ... In the pink

It's nice to see some marketing thought gone to this street appeal. Taking a bit more trouble to put some balloons and having an eye catching dress-up must generate an above average revenue per collector. This is Grace doing a fantastic job for the breast cancer foundation at Lambton Quay. THANKS RUMI FOR THE IMAGE

#1959 ... Medieval Machine??

This may look a bit like something from the Dark Ages ... however it's a machine specifically designed for trimming very tall and large farm hedges. Another of the interesting aspects of travelling away from the city.

#1958 ... Mr Fixit

Even the city's rubbish bins need repairs & maintenance. This guy seemed happy enough keeping it all in good order.
