Spring in the air

Auckland, Fisher, Myer, broadcasting, Shortland

What a perfect day to paint a big white wall. The view over Auckland and the harbour would have been superb today, hopefully enough to make up for the chilly start to the day. The windowless brick building in the foreground is the Kenneth Myer Building, home to the Gus Fisher Gallery in Shortland Street, central Auckland. http://www.nzmuseums.co.nz. One of New Zealand’s first radio stations, 1YA, broadcast out of this building which dates from 1934. Later it became a television studio: NZ’s first TV broadcast was from here on 1st June, 1960
