McDeco McDonalds

I'm not sure that I've noticed this phenomenon anywhere else but there are some quite interesting McDonalds in New Zealand. The one in Taupo is an old (I think) DeHaveland Dakota. The one in Taradale - a suburb of Napier - is Art Deco. It was formerly the Taradale Hotel and in 1997 it was restored and converted into McDonalds. The decorative plasterwork inside was cast from original moulds used in the reconstruction of Napier and Hastings after the 'quake.
