Manchester Street Re-Opened

This afternoon I strolled down Manchester Street - newly re-opened to traffic after the lifting of more of the Red Zone cordons. I wasn't the only one. Sightseers and Sunday drivers were out in force, to catch a glimpse of a part of the city they haven't been able to walk through for over two years - since the February 22, 2011 earthquake. I could write 24,000 words on the subject, but operating on the premise that a picture is worth a thousand words - and because I'm sick of writing about earthquakes - I bring a photographic study instead.

I think you'll agree, the place needs work.

I just can't reconcile this with the image I have of Machester Street ... Smith's, Carnnivores, the YHA place on the corner.

Things have certainly changed in central Christchurch - which is now such a well-worn cliche, I wonder why I write it :-)
