University of Auckland: Clock Tower and Old Choral Hall

While exploring Heritage Images online I decided to search images of the University of Auckland out of interest as I’ve studying there for the past five years. The images are very interesting and give a gauge as to how the university has changed over the years.

The Clock Tower hasn’t changed too much but I was surprised to see how Old Choral Hall had changed drastically since the early 20th century. It started out resembling the Auckland War Memorial Museum, a classical Roman design, but these days the columns are gone and the building has increased in size.
