This is the former Wellington Free Ambulance Building catching the late afternoon sun. The Wellington Free Ambulance service was founded in 1928 by Sir Charles Norwood, businessman, philanthropist and Mayor of Wellington 1925-27. It was the only free ambulance service in New Zealand.
This building was constructed in 1932 to the design by William Turnbull and the service used it until new premises were constructed in Thorndon in 1994.
Since then it has had a variety of uses and is now a bar.
This last one isn't a door, but it is an entrance to the seating area of Montevideo's Estadio Centenario where Uruguay won the first Football World Cup in 1930. How good is this deco plaque celebrating that achievement.
In Melbourne Art Deco, Robin Grow, President of the Art Deco & Modernism Society, examines the rise, fall and resurgence of Art Deco in Melbourne from the 1930s to the present day. With contemporary images by David Thompson and a team of photographers, supported by archival material, Melbourne Art Deco offers an invaluable insight into history and current state of one of the city's most popular styles.
