More Info →A View of Broadway Avenue and The Square.

This photograph shows the intersection between Rangitikei Street and The Square. Beyond that is the intersection between Broadway Avenue and The Square. The building with a clock tower on the far right is the Australasian Temperance and General Mutual Life Assurance Society Ltd (T&G) building in Palmerston North. It was designed by A and K Henderson in the distinctive 'house' style developed by the firm and constructed in 1938. The ornate building is the Bank of New Zealand (BNZ). This building was constructed in 1915, to replace the former BNZ on the corner of Fitzherbert Avenue and The Square. It was demolished to make way for a new BNZ in 1988. It is now occupied by retail stores.
