The shop/gallery history
A pre & post earthquake timeline of the tiny central city shop.
Paul was in the shop at the time
& the building across the laneway collapsed in front of his eyes :-(

Apr. 15 - happy days!
- allowed in for 10 mins. to empty the shop
How life was before 2011
in the little piece of paradise,
a wee 4m x 3m,
the front part of a family owned, second generation
traditional barber's shop ....
We were bused into near our laneway,
the next 3 pics are views of on the way into "the Red Zone",
followed by 2 pics looking down the laneway from the library end,
& the last one shop owners hauling out their possessions in wheelie bins
1pm, Feb. 22, 2011 & it's aftermath ....
