Day Eleven 'Old but Young'

New Zealand is a very young country in terms of European discovery and  migration. Our oldest building is reportedly Kemp House built in 1821. In Auckland we have some fine examples of early architecture. Auckland was first settled by the indigenous Maori circa 1350. It became New Zealand's capital in 1841 (the title of capital was moved to Wellington in 1865).
Today's photo of the day is of Custom House in Auckland City. It was built in 1889 as a Public Building.
