Looking back at 4 September 2010

This is what I saw shortly after 4.35am, after the 7.1 earthquake on 4 September 2010. Victoria Street, Christchurch.

The Central Library in Gloucester Street looked like this.

And while the Central Library was closed, people made the most of the free wifi.

It was three years ago today, not long in the scheme of the things.
But doesn’t 3 September 2010 and before seem a world away.
