Now, Come on people, this building has been stalking me for several decades now (or is it that the other way around?)
I’m a detail fanatic, so it should come as no surprise that I took a lot of photos of Napier’s Rothman’s Building. (a.k.a. The National Tobacco Company Building)
Of course I couldn’t resist getting up close and personal … the details here are so photogenic.
Annoyingly didn’t realise until I did my research on the building’s history later, that it’s possible to also see inside the building…
…if only I had known that when I was standing outside!
Since I’m definitely not in the habit of just opening people’s doors and peeking inside, I now know that if we ever pass through Napier again, that this building in back on my list for a visit inside.
It’s probably fitting that the building that’s been stuck in my brain for so many years still has a reason to draw me back yet again.
Next time I return, I will be properly mobile, not reliant on crutches and have more time. A return visit will be a win – win situation.
I know that the photos abound, probably overkill, but these are my references to keep me dreaming about this building for as many years as it will take me to get back…
