This photograph was taken from the tower of the Australasian Temperance and General Mutual Life Assurance Society Ltd (T&G) building, near the corner of Broadway Avenue and The Square. This partial view of the Square shows a number of its most recognisable monuments including: the Ladies Rest Rooms, built 1936; War Memorial, unveiled in 1926 to commemorate the casualties of WWI; the second band rotunda, built in 1907, but pulled down in 1956 to make way for the Hopwood Tower; All Saints Church, built 1914. Beyond can be seen the Tararua Mountains. Note that a long train is running through the Main Street line.
