Hawkes Bay Museum

Below you will find pics from the Hawkes Bay Museum. Hawkes Bay is a long sweeping coastline on the eastern part of the north island. Napier is situated on this caostline. The town was hit by a massive quake in 1931 and was completely devastated. It was rebuilt in the art deco style that was popular @ the time. You'll find a vid of a woman telling of her experience during and after the quake. A pic of the carnage the quake did to the town, a pic of what the true Maori tribal people used to look like, some of strange European fashion including clubber fashion in the UK and a couple of other things.
