Napier Art Deco Weekend

My Sweet Mary stall all set up early Saturday morning on Market Street - all quiet and waiting for the bustle to start as its Art Deco weekend in Napier. Soon the streets will come alive with people, some dressed in the style of the 1930's and others just to look and take photos of all the magnificent sights. My husband walked around all morning taking photos so I have included the following favourite shots. Please click on the highlighted link as this site gives you concise and interesting information on the devastating 1931 Napier earthquake and how the town centre was rebuilt in the popular architectural styles of the day.
