Photo hunt: Memorial

This plague is at the outside wall of our Town hall. The building was opened in 1911,

150 years of our Heritage.

At Western Springs, a very popular park, we remember the American Soldiers who were in our country in 1942-1944.

I took the photos of the Town Hall when I went last week to watch the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

To all our American friends, I join you in solemn remembrance of all your heros on Memorial Day. In New Zealand, we celebrated ours on ANZAC Day last month.
