Auckland - West

Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens

1942

AEPB 1942

AEPB 1942

Balmoral Electric Power substation in Balmoral Road, Sandringham, in a stripped art deco style like a number of substations in Auckland. AEPB stands for “Auckland Electric Power Board”, and 1942 was a good year.

In the course of electricity reforms (separating the generating and distribution roles), AEPB became “Mercury Energy” in 1993.

    Classically symmetrical, which you expect out of the style.
