The Jungle Takes Over

This Wellington building had been closed for only 18 months, while it waited for earthquake strengthening, when I took this photo.  Clearly it doesn’t take very long for buildings to be taken back into the jungle. A further reminder to me about the importance of day-to-day maintanence of heritage buildings, and about how small, incremental damage can be done to a building which can be just as bad – in the long run – as a dramatic event such as an earthquake.
