Location Signs: Ambrico Place

Ambrico Place (map), New Lynn, is a no exit street off Rankin Avenue, oposite of the Monier Brick Factory. Its entrance is flanked on either side by such a mosaic sign – seen here in the light of the morning sun with the background totally in the shade – recalling some of the local features: the kiln (subject of yesterday’s post), stacks of bricks that would have been produced here, pottery items, and creepy-crawleys like gecko and centipede, as well as nikau palms.
