Giant Shopping Trolley

This outsize shopping trolley keeps watch over the intersection of Alfred and Neilson Streets, Onehunga. Until not so long ago, the inscription was “Faulkner Collins” – a manufacturer of wire products from shopping trolleys to plastic coated shelving. The building must have changed hands, and the new owners are specialists in “Reverse Logistics” — letting the shopping trolley run in reverse, if you look at the illustration on their descriptive page. (Providing an answer to the question: “What happens to all the hangers left behind in the shops after an afternoon’s fun by my fashion conscious half?”)
