Escalator in Millers Building, late 1970s .

Caption

Millers was the first building in the South island to have an escalator.

Date: late 1970s

Highly Commended entry in the 2014 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt by Des Pinn.

Judges Comment: Any child born in the sixties will remember the endless fun and simple entertainment to be had riding the Millers department store. The perspective of the photographer, the colours, the signage and the people moving through the space captures the experience beautifully. I love the way the photographer has has chosen the moment a child is about to ascend the escalator to press the shutter.
