Time machine

 A strange experience: use Google Earth to look at the Christchurch CBD. Make sure "3D Buildings" is set On. Suddenly you're looking at the city as it was before the earthquakes. The excellent 3D modelling done by enthusiasts is spookily realistic.
Looking south-east. From the right foreground are Copthorne, Crowne Plaza, and Town Hall. Pyne Gould building is left centre, by the river. Catholic Cathedral and AMI Stadium left rear.

Looking north-west. The building at centre right with patches of red is the CTV building. Grand Chancellor Hotel upper centre.
