20 Ross & Glendining Building in Napier, New Zealand

John Ross and Robert Glendinning opened a worsted wool mill near Dunedin in 1871. Their enterprise expanded into several New Zealand cities including Napier. In 1933, the Roslyn Worsted & Woollen Mills built this local office. Architect Ernest Arthur Williams incorporated a Māori motif on the facade. Since 1995, the Art Deco structure has been the Napier Antique & Jewelry Centre. Two sisters – Keri & Raewyn – invite you to shop among their collectables plus Art Deco clothing and accessories. The pictured woman seemed surprised to be greeted by a similarly dressed mannequin.
