Acacia Cottage, the oldest building in Auckland, was built in 1841 by Sir John Logan Campbell and his business partner, Mr. William Brown.
A beautiful old house close to the Cathedral, only open on a sunday, but the guide was helpful and friendly,
A cabin full of books, a literary heart immediately jumped up
This is a villa-style bookstore. The design of the house alone shocked me. The story behind it is even more touching. It is said that it was designed and built by Vicesimus Lush, the Anglican priest of Howick, and his wife Blanche in the 1960s. Lush wanted his eldest son to study at Parnell Middle School. Father's love and mother's love are the greatest, all starting points are for the good of children. I feel that this is a love bookstore. The books in it are all father's deep love for his children. Holding a book, I hold up a love quite well. This place shocked my heart.
The classical Vitorian villa is said to have been designed and built by Vicesimus Lush, an Anglican priest of Howick, and his wife Blanche in the 1960s. Lush wanted his eldest son to study at Parnell Middle School. It is full of fatherly love. This historical building contains many books, nearly 2,000 copies, hundreds of pages of music scores, some drawings and many well-preserved historical relics. It's still a great feeling to turn a Book inside. Photographs are taken in a fairy tale bookstore.
It's good. If you have a chance, you still need to go out more to broaden your horizon.
