Brisbane's daily newspaper, The Courier Mail, has a travel review of Wellington:
This capital city is small and comforting, and its people, with their 1950s good manners, live in genteel pockets of suburbia. They talk to you on the bus, still play Tina Turner in elevators and hang portraits of a youthful Queen Elizabeth in their offices.
Portraits of a youthful Queen Elizabeth? Which offices did this guy visit? The Chair lived in Wellington for most of his life, and cannot recall anywhere where a portrait of a young Queen Elizabeth was on display. Most public buildings don't have a picture of the Queen, let alone a youthful one. About the only place you'd see one would be the Cock & Bull pub on Lambton Quay, which is one of those faux-English pubs. Even then I'm not so sure if they've actually got one.
