Franklin Road Christmas Lights

The famous Franklin Road Christmas lights get switched on this evening. Local newspaper, ‘Auckland City Harbour News,’ spoke to the organiser, Roscoe Thurby;



Roscoe says the lights range in style from elegant and traditional to retro and trash - reflecting the variety of people who live on Franklin Road.

Is it just me, or does that sound rather insulting?

Who would be the retro trash living on Franklin Road? The Housing New Zealand tenants? Hamish Keith? It's so hard to say.

Does it name the newspaper photographer? Just curious.

Santa parade in my 'burb tonight. At least Santa didn't get beaten up.

Yes, very. One's own family always make handy models, I guess...
