Certainly looks impressive. We are getting more buildings made of laminated wood, as it helps in the quakes.

I think this one is probably easy, but I am running out of suitable photos.

the near far nord, eh!
Thanks David @djtaylor7
Spent a lot of time in TO... probably should have waited a bit for others, but figured Stan probably had it in the bag and I got so excited I just blurted it out... first time with a brain fart... the old city hall is where we used to go every nov 11th for Remembrance Day. Good to see some local stuff show up here. Thanks for posting!
I’ll dig up something soon and get it posted. Might be tomorrow morning though.

Yeah, sorry Stan @stagor, I looked at it and thought I would get to it eventually, but other things have occupied my mind!

Maybe now is a great time for this thread as people have more time and want something to distract themselves with.
What I have missed in this thread lately is more people guessing and searching, it has often come down to one person doing it all.
I think that takes the fun out of it, the more, the merrier!
It also helps by giving others ideas.

Sorry, but I don't have a ready picture! (Will try to find some over the weekend, so I am prepared for the future.) 😎

@stagor In the same boat here... family issues, computer issues, business issues, world issues... all took precedence this time... and after looking at it a few times knew I had not a hope in you know where of figuring out where it might be. Hoping to come up for air soon so will flail away at whatever comes up next.

To keep things moving, try this one? Taken in 2015 with my mobile phone.

You are in the right country, but a fair way from Hobbiton (and yes you can do a Hobbiton tour, just not at the moment).
Top left of the photo there is a definite clue as to what is going on here.

Bingo. Yes the cliff came down in the 2011 earthquake. Shot from the beach on the road to Sumner, the containers were used to protect the road (and passing cars) from more debris coming down. You can see half a house on the top of the cliff.
Over to you.

Thanks David.
My first visit to NZ (in the late 1970's) began in Christchurch. Spent three weeks travelling around the South Island and everywhere I went I encountered the friendliest, most welcoming people I'd ever met.
So I was very sad to watch on TV the destruction from the earthquakes.

OK,
Where are we - the name of the location or the name of the building is fine. Just a tiny clue - the next image I took (of the other side of the building) was flagged by a reverse image search almost instantly. So it's a world famous location.
