After the 1931 earthquake in Napier, the town was rebuilt in the art deco style of the day. The Public Trust building (in the 2nd mosaic) was the only building that didn't fall and influenced the decision.
Hubby chose for us to tour the town in a 1938 Packard! It was all original and owned by a local company that allowed it to be used for the tours. Sue was an excellent driver and she had hats and boas for us to wear!
These are photos of the National Tobacco Company building. It has quite a history. Click here.
