Image of the Week: 23rd March - 29th March

Don't play with matches!

This image was taken 40 years ago in March 1975, after a large fire burnt down part of the School of Fine Arts. The cause of the fire is unknown (unless someone out there has been keeping a secret – now would be a good time to confess!) If you are interested you can read about it here - or have a look at Kā Kohika for more images.
