26 January 2016

Today is a big day for Coromandel and Driving Creek Railway (where I work part-time as an archivist). This evening we are taking Barry up the line and placing his coffin in his chosen burial plot near Hoki Mai…

I have worked at Driving Creek Railway since 2011 helping Barry to catalogue his impressive collection of New Zealand artwork, as well as his own work. We developed a cautious respect of each other, which has grown into friendship. RIP Barry Brickell (26 October 1935 – 23 January 2016).

On Wednesday there will be a public celebration of Barry’s life and work to be held at 1pm at Coromandel Area School Hall, Woollams Ave, Coromandel. I think the whole town will be there…
