Goodbye to the iconic Christ Church cathedral in Christchurch City, NZ...

    Despite some last minute claims that Christchurch's iconic Christ Church cathedral could be
    saved, the owners, the Anglican Church, have made the final decision. It is too badly damaged and dangerous for the public to remain intact. It will be demolished carefully down to two or three meters, as reported a couple of weeks ago. The public will get the opportunity to view the old cathedral during the next two weekends from special walkways in the red zone.
    The link I have provided gives a before and after view of many sites in the CBD, including the cathedral. It is personally painful for me as I was born and bred in this city and the cathedral has always been the "image" of Christchurch during the decades I've been away, and when I have returned over the years.


  • “It took 160 years to build the city of Christchurch. It took an earthquake 24 seconds to rip the heart out of it. A century and a half of human endeavour was wasted in less than half a minute. In that half a minute, 185 people died or were mortally wounded.”
