Idle Auckland

If you haven't added Mrs Smith's Idle Vice to your regular reading, then you must. She's a hoot. Describing herself, 'Mrs Smith' says, "I am a repressed minority; I stoically face up to discrimination and hostility everyday. It's not easy being a born-and-(well)bred Aucklander with loads of money." Times are tough all over.

Today 'Mrs Smith' is offering readers "a few facts about Auckland." Sample:
There are air-raid shelters under Albert Park, with a capacity for 20,400 people. They were built during WWII, when it was feared we might be bombed by the Japanese. The excavation was done by up to 100 council staff, by hand, without the aid of excavating equipment. It was the last time council staff did any real work.
Read on here.
