Planning to move to Christchurch to help with the rebuild?

You should keep an eye on a series that Stuff.co.nz is running, asking readers to submit their before and after earthquake photos.

The first one (above) is a sobering reminder that after three years the city still has a long way to go. View the assignment here.

The forgotten Eastern suburbs not seen from the skies

What is even more startling is Google street views of the Eastern suburbs. For example:

Parenga Place

Pages Road

Fordingbridge Lane
