well, for one: seems fair to assume all imagery was taken on the same
day; I'd be surprised if here at Tongariro St was taken separately to
Chartwell Square just down the road.
so, for two: it's definitely quiet, but there's a truck backing into
home here (48), which only happened on (a) Sun 14/12 around 5pm or (b)
Wed 17/12 sometime in the pm. (unless my mail folder is lying to me)
for three: the shops are -far- too quiet for a Sunday before Christmas,
but busy enough for late weekday pm to be plausible. (Thursday parking
around the various centres would've been *chocka*, probably from 3pm.)
for four: my car's not at home, which rules out 14/12. I think I see it
in Collingwood St though, which boosts the odds of 17/12. definitely
before 5pm. I remember the parking in Collingwood St/Ruakiwi Rd being
light that week, but the few cars that are there makes it much more
likely to be later in the day than earlier.
for five: cars are parked on the Bryce St clearway, so before 4:30.
so, yeah: close enough to Christmas that the general bustle in town has
slowed down, but not so close that last-minute weekday panic buying has
ain't putting money on it, but it seems pursuasive to me!
