Many thanks to former Dorset Street Flats resident Dale Deavoll for sending through these photographs of the flats. Dale lived in Number 6 from 2007 to 2010, and happened to be visiting a friend there when he took these pictures, just one week before the February 2011 earthquake.
Auckland architect David Mitchell passed away on Thursday, aged 77. For fans of the Dorset Street Flats, he is remembered for his documentary series, "The Elegant Shed" (1984), which featured Miles Warren describing the evolution of the flats design.
