Fifties Glamour

Auckland. April 2009. Ajr
The MLC Building (Mutual Life Company) on Queen Street, was the tallest building in Auckland when it opened in 1957. Now it’s home to Scenic Circle’s Airedale Hotel. I paid them a visit a month ago when I was in Auckland and I must say I was very taken with their foyer – the fantastic tiles (original) and the magnificent 1950s light fitting that dominates the space. They don’t build them like they used to!
