On the corner of Willow and Spring Streets Tauranga.
This old building was constructed in 1925 by Tauranga builder Karl Johanson and apparently was one of several buldings of similar construction around town at that time.
It was a shock to see this old building reappear from behind recently removed cladding.
For many years after 1935 it was called the Bagley's Building. Bagley were drapers.
In the link that follows there is a lot of very interesting info and pictures from Tauranga's days past.
Most of the pictures show streets and buildings I remember well.
Worth a look.

The white wrap has been removed and this is the big reveal.
Downtown Tauranga on the Red Square
It's different, not sure what it is exactly. Looks like a very expensive facade.

Not that happy with me taking pictures
Under the Tauranga harbour road bridge. Lots of graffitti and hide away alcoves well set up for people living the street life. Frankly a very grubby area and getting worse by the day.
