Clearly a "heritage building" - one of the few remaining ones - that is worth being preserved.
The quakes have revealed a lot of previously hidden stuff, such as that yellow building with music notes on it, or the beautiful stained glass windows of the Mackenzie and Willis Store.
On a brighter note, I also came across some interesting graffiti around the place:
A colourful mural of some sort. No idea what it says tho!
The bandages have been appearing all around the place, especially over holes in walls. Another one I've seen reads "This'll make it better"... Yeah Right!
