Detail of the front door of The Tobacco Co. in Napier
Napier in New Zealand is known as the art deco town. It was devastated by an earthquake in 1931 and what the quake didn’t destroy the fire that raged through the town afterwards did. They rebuilt the town in 2 years during the Depression, a remarkable feat. Being the 1930s it was done in the Art Deco style which they have preserved and still remains today. It’s a wonderful town. Loved it!
