Going, going, gone!

I had no idea when I sketched this in July that they were about to be demolished. Turns out they're part of the Auckland City Mission site redevelopment so they're making room for something more practical for use. Sad to lose more character in the city, but it I understand the these buildings were just about ready to fall over by themselves. The good news is the old Prince of Wales pub on the Hobson Street side will be restored.
