Clanging on Willis St

Word from the Fuel peeps is that the olde worlde bells along Willis Street today were part of the Civil Defence Awareness week that’s on at the moment. They’re working bells and many passers by were grabbing their robes and giving them a ding. They’re representing bells that originally used to hang along the foreshore – yes the tide line used to be up in Willis Street before the big earthquake and land reclamation – and the bells were used to warn of rising waters.

They were gone by the time I walked home tonight – apparently part of an art installation and the poor artist patrolling the street received many complaints of too much clanging from various store owners along Willis Street.
