About this print
Set in suburban post war 1940s and 50s New Zealand where we still saw ourselves as part of the British Empire. The art deco house is based on a house in Mt Eden, Auckland.
The Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL) formed in 1939 to provide air travel from New Zealand to Australia thus acquiring three Short S.30 Class Empire C Class 24 seater flying boats, one being the ZK - AMA Aotearoa depicted here. Initially the service was weekly and the trans Tasman flight took 9 hours. This aircraft was superseded by faster aircrafts, the last being 45 seater Short Solent flying boat that reduced the trans Tasman flight to five and a half hours. The last of these flights was September 1960. Simon has a fascination with flying boats, his first flight was in one.
