Point That Thing - an historical photo archive of Auckland music and places

The Clash's Joe Strummer, on stage in Auckland BITD

Some people are good at capturing a time and a place with their camera and Jonathan Ganley is one of these. Throughout the eighties and nineties Ganley got around Auckland shooting gigs, largely of the Flying Nun or indie kind - and buildings before they were knocked down in the greedy property development destruction of the time. He has started a blog to showcase some of these images called Point That Thing and whilst the blog is new there is the promise of much more to come. The man takes a nice photo too...
