Castle On The Cheap Side

20190625_214058.jpg

Faded grandeur on Auckland’s Dominion Road.

Faux castle battlements above the proud name,’Cheapside’.

Peeling grey paint.

A bit down at the heel maybe.

Probably not the future imagined at the laying of its foundations.

But still standing,useful and with purpose after the best part of a century.

Some of us are like this battling building, battered but not broken(alliteration alert!).

And still dreaming of being castles…
