No offense to this establishment; I've never seen the inside of the motel. Mid-City Motor Lodge is so centrally located, on Trafalgar Street. The famous Nelson Saturday Market takes place just behind it, in the foreground of this pic. But it's not one of the most attractive architectural examples of Nelson.
So why am I posting this? I recently started collecting shots of buildings of Nelson CBD, because there have been few old ones being torn down over the years and I can't remember what used to be in the flattened lots, let alone after something new springs up. And I often miss what used to be, sometimes without knowing what I'm missing. It takes my breath away looking at photos of Nelson from the 1960's and 70's, and sometimes from the 90's, at the Museum and see the changes. In my old-er age, I'm going to look back at some of these and reminisce, you see.
PS There are no plans/rumors that this one is coming down. Just so you don't get the wrong idea.
