Stuck In Time: Silver Shadow Calls On The Self-Proclaimed Art Deco Capital Of The World, Napier, New Zealand

Silver Shadow visits Napier, New Zealand, which bills itself as The Art Deco Capital (of the World!)

Today, Silver Shadow docked in the self-proclaimed Art Deco Capital of The World. I won’t be the one to dispute the claim. The city pulls it off quite nicely, down to greeters walking the streets dressed in period costumes.

Blast from the Past. Meet the locals in Art Deco-era Napier.

A strong earthquake devastated the city in 1931, and citizens rebuilt it in art deco style.

Napier's beach features small, rounded stones, evidence of the region's former volcanic activity.

Just outside Napier is the Mission Estate Winery. Check out the video.
