Napier: New Zealand's Art Deco City

Napier is the Art Deco capital of New Zealand.  Located on the east coast of North Island, the city was destroyed in an earthquake (Richter scale 7.8) and was subsequently rebuilt in the 1930s in flamboyant Art Deco style.  Here are some photos taken after my arrival in Napier in the late afternoon.  Had wonderful lamb shank after that.
