Yeah. Its really sobering looking at these photos of yours Sydney. Strange to think what a minute of shaking can do.

Thankfully most of what is on this page is salvageable. I look forward to seeing the city rise again.

Not quite sure as yet but it looks as if entire streets will be bulldozed. As soon as I have more info I will submit a post with all the lost heritage pics. Thanks for the comment mate

There are 3 hotels that look as if they will be demolished - maybe more

I am pleased to read that there is some willpower to restore the stone buildings to their former glory - also very, very happy that you are okay

Yeah, I was there exactly one month prior to the earthquake - the city was buzzing and getting back on its feet, who would have thought that a month later it will be a ghost town

Christchurch is such a beautiful place! Too bad she was destroyed because of an earthquake

Wonderful collection of photos, Sydney.

Have you had the opportunity to take any more photos since the earthquake? I'd be very interested to see images of the aftermath and whatever may have survived, although I'm assuming large areas of downtown Christchurch are probably still off limits.

I hope everyone is recovering down there and rebuilding can start soon.

I loved it - very cute indeed. They also had other signs around like "gnome is where the heart is" - very clever. Thanks for the comment mate

It is very heartbreaking indeed - let's hope that they can rebuild an even better city without losing it's soul Thanks for the comment

Thanks Jennifat I haven't been back to CHCH since January and I will probably not go back there for at least another year. Details are rather sketchy regarding which buildings will be restored and which will be torn down. I think that it is safe to say that many of the heritage buildings will be lost

Thanks for your concern and vested interest

Every building in the last post has been damaged A fantastic reminder of what is lost and what can hopefully be saved
