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.

This sign is at the corner of Balmoral and Dominion Roads. I had not noticed it until a few days ago, don’t know if it is new. A few steps along is a bench made from the same material.

I am not a drummer, but I adore a good drum riff – and I liked these murals on the side of the Drum City shop in Rocklands Avenue, Balmoral. Painted by Disruptiv Ltd. (Thanks to Tristan of Drum City for the information.)
