BNZ Bank board


Wow Auckland sure has changed since I use to work there in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Last time we were there wandering around the city I noticed this kind of animated screen on the outside of one of the buildings on Queen Street opposite Fort Street advertising the BNZ Bank, every minute it would change to another business. Seemed a bit like Back to the Future 2.

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

I agree, Amy. Auckland Central has certainly changed. It is several years since I have been there, but we went on Thursday and I was glad to leave again. It felt too much "inner city" for my liking.

Sounds like you have never seen Piccadilly circus in the UK, but then walking around Tokyo is amazing

Great reflection.
These billboards are amazing. A company, Daktonics, is a major manufacturer of these signs all controlled by computers.

I'm reminded of downtown Toronto.
An interesting down town image. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you.

We have a fashion-chain, New Yorker (I cannot go in there anymore, I´m old, since ages, the music blaring you can hear on the street! What nonesense!).
They have such an add-wall, too. Amazing, somehow, really.

Now I will always think of Marty when I pass by!

I'd love to go back and see Auckland again. I worked at Oakley mental hospital in the late 60s early 70s. My off time was spent wandering round Queen Street and environs. Loved it

We have several of those electronic billboards around town but nothing as big as this one. This one looks like it belongs in Times Square.

Typical urban milieu. Lovely capture.

...it has a nice mix of older building and glass high rises.
As William said, we have lots in Toronto. I like them.
I also really liked Auckland.

I love your street scene. That big sign sure makes it all look like big city downtown.

Look very much like a big city. Almost 10 years since I was there.

Awesome street scene. I doubt I will ever make it to Auckland, but always wanted to go to Australia.
