More classic Ponsonby for removal

Fresh off my midnight reportage of the old Erawan Thai villa being cut up and removed by truck, I've discovered that Numbers 3 and 5 Blake Street, Ponsonby, are for removal as well.

Apparently a Hamilton developer will be erecting an apartment block in their place. Is this really the future of Ponsonby; replacing character buildings with tilt slab construction?

How sad. How uncaring. I wonder if I'd recognise it now?

I think for the most part it looks the same Dinah, although one of my kids took the wrong street on their way home from school!
