About the Work
“The Volcano Cafe and Lava Bar were two iconic institutions in the port town of Lytellton, on the other side of the Port Hills from Christchurch. I remember enjoying some nachos at the cafe on occasion. Standing on the corner of the town’s main street, their blue and yellow facades were some of the best known landmarks in the town. Unfortunately they had to be torn down after the earthquakes. Bill Hammond was a frequent patron at the Lava Bar and contributed artwork to the interior decor.”
