This is the New Plymouth Barrett Street Hospital. Straight ahead you can see the Bulk Store (small building that looks like it is on stilts) and the Psychiatric Wards towering above. If you were to compare this photo today there would be nothing but thick dense bush. Really amazing to see how much it has changed over the past few decades.
