REO Carpark, Auckland

REO Carpark, Auckland

I discovered this building through the wonderful Timespanner blog. So having arrived in Auckland this afternoon I took the opportunity to wander down Federal Street to have a look for myself.

It was constructed in 1937 as a garage and showroom for A B Donald Ltd who were agents for the REO Motor Company.
