"Looking through The Square to the General Post Office on the corner of Main Street. The Coronation Fountain still stands in its original position, next to the railway lines - it was moved to the quadrant closest to Coleman Place in 1926.
The postcard was printed by Essex and Co, Palmerston North.
Date stamped 5 September 1910. The reverse reads:
To Mrs Moorhouse, Knottingley, Dixon Street, Wellington.
Club Hotel
Monday afternoon
No head wind – Wm still cheerful but talks of returning tomorrow. Very comfortable here so far. Love from each us to both of you
